I created these SOH CAH TOA notes for my Pre-Calculus students a few years ago to review how to find the trigonometric functions of an angle, given a triangle. First, we reviewed the different parts of a right triangle. I have also created a poster of the parts of a right triangle that might be …

# Right Triangle Trigonometry

I created these trig functions posters a few years ago when I was teaching a year-long trigonometry course. Somehow, they never got a blog post of their own. I created separate posters for the three basic trig functions and the three reciprocal trig functions. I designed these posters to print on 11 x 17 cardstock. …

I created this Parts of a Right Triangle poster several years ago when I was teaching trigonometry. I wanted to emphasize the vocabulary words for adjacent, opposite, and hypotenuse before we jumped into right triangle trig. I designed this parts of a right triangle poster to print on 11 x 17 cardstock. I hung this …

I love this clinometer activity for giving my trigonometry students extra practice finding missing angles and sides of right triangles. Plus, it answers the question of “When will we ever use this?” I printed a clinometer template off of VirtualMaths.org for them to use. I mistakenly assumed that they would be able to put together …

I created this finding missing angles of right triangles practice book for my trigonometry students to glue in their interactive notebooks. My students were a bit miffed that they had to just write these equations. They thought I should have given them a foldable for these! I did make them a practice book, though. These …

SOH CAH TOA. The mnemonic device that sums up the majority of the population’s knowledge of right triangle trigonometry. Today I want to share a free download of a SOHCAHTOA Poster I made for my own classroom. Yesterday, I printed off a heap of posters and started laminating them. Earlier this summer, I had …

I learned about the song Gettin’ Triggy Wit It by WSHS on YouTube from Meg Craig. It was the perfect addition to our unit on right triangle trigonometry. If you haven’t seen this video, stop everything and watch it now. My students enjoyed the video the first time we watched it, but they had a …

I created this SOH CAH TOA foldable for my trigonometry students to glue in their interactive notebooks. Our geometry standards include basic right triangle trig, but I’ve found that my students’ experience with this topic is greatly lacking. They remember learning SOH CAH TOA, but they never really did know what they were doing. It’s …
