To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
6.08 Bonus Video: Law of Sines—The Ambiguous Case
The Law of Sines can be used to solve for sides and angles of oblique triangles. However, in some cases more than one triangle may satisfy the given conditions. We refer to this as an ambiguous case.
6 Chapter 3: Kinematics
In this chapter, we analyze the motion of constantly accelerated objects over time in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
8 Chapter 5: Introduction to Trigonometry and Graphs
In this chapter, we will explore angle measures and the trigonometric ratios, including graphing and inverses.
5 Chapter 7: Sequences and Series
In this chapter, we introduce sequences and series, some of their applications, and the Binomial Theorem.
3 Chapter 4: Systems of Equations
In this chapter, we will explore the methods used to solve systems of equations, and real-world situations involving systems of equations.
5 Chapter 6: Waves
In this chapter, we explore the mathematical concept of a wave and show how this concept can be used to accurately describe and predict many natural phenomena.
6 Chapter 2: Polynomial and Rational Functions
In this chapter, we will explore beyond linear functions and learn about polynomial and rational functions.
3 Chapter 7: Static Electricity
In this chapter, we explore how electrically charged particles interact through electrostatic forces and fields.
