General Outcome: Develop spatial sense and proportional reasoning.

Specific Outcomes: It is expected that students will:

  1. Solve problems that involve linear measurement, using:

1.1 Provide referents for linear measurements, including millimetre, centimetre, metre, kilometre, inch, foot, yard and mile, and explain the choices.

1.2 Compare SI and imperial units, using referents.
1.3 Estimate a linear measure, using a referent, and explain the process used.
1.4 Justify the choice of units used for determining a measurement in a problem-solving context.
1.5 Solve problems that involve linear measure, using instruments such as rulers, calipers or tape measures.

  1. Develop and apply the primary trigonometric ratios (sine, cosine, tangent) to solve problems that involve right triangles.
    [C, CN, PS, R, T, V]

4.1 Explain the relationships between similar right triangles and the definitions of the primary trigonometric ratios.

The following applet provides an introduction to trigonometry:

4.2 Identify the hypotenuse of a right triangle and the opposite and adjacent sides for a given acute angle in the triangle

4.3 Solve right triangles.

4.4 Solve a problem that involves one or more right triangles by applying the primary trigonometric ratios or the Pythagorean theorem.

Select [Practice].

There are 18 question types for right triangles.

Select [Next Type] to see another question type. These types are organized in groups of three:

  • 1-3 Pythagorean Theorem
  • 4-6 trigonometry ratio from a given angle
  • 7-9 trigonometry ratio given two sides
  • 10-12 calculate acute angle given two sides
  • 13-15 calculate the numerator of the trigonometry function
  • 16-18 calculate the denominator of the trigonometry function

[New Problem] generates additional questions of the same type.

[Check/Explain] provides a solution and calculator keystrokes for the type/question selected.

 

4.5 Solve a problem that involves indirect and direct measurement, using the trigonometric ratios, the Pythagorean theorem and measurement instruments such as a clinometer or metre stick.
