How To Make up a Word Problem using Trigonometry and Indirect Measurement.

Each student will make up a word problem using trigonometry and indirect measurement.

  1. Use page 426 examples 2, 3, 4, and 5 as a guideline to make up a word problem.
  2. Sketch a picture to illustrate your problem
  3. Include 4 questions (labeled a, b, c and d)
  4. Solve your problem
  5. Have your problem check by Abernethy
  6. Write your problem on white paper WITHOUT an picture and WITHOUT the solution. Make sure your problem is descriptive enough so that another student can sketch a picture and solve your problem.
  7. Write the solution on white paper with illustrations for each set.
  8. Trade problems with you assigned partner.
  9. Solve you partners problem. If you find mistakes, PLEASE CORRECT THEM. You will receive full credit this way. Your partner will have points taken off if they have not caught their own mistakes.
