Trigonometry Prezi Project

Due Thursday 2/23 for Skill Maintenance Grade
This project is designed to help you fully grasp the concept of using trigonometry to solve problems. This includes finding the length of a missing side or a missing angle of a right triangle, identifying these problems in everyday life, drawing them, calculating their values, and weaving it all into an interesting, amusing or creative story! You will then create a Prezi presentation of your story problem. You will need to go to www.prezi.com and create a free account if you do not already have one. Your task is to develop a story involving the missing angle or missing side of a right triangle. To support your story, you will need to carefully draw a picture (or use a photograph) illustrating the problem in your story. You may also want to include supporting materials in your Prezi such as additional photographs or videos. You may draw your picture(s) by hand and scan them or you may use Paint or any drawing program to create your pictures. You also might consider inserting a Youtube video of a screencast in which you explain your problem (you can make a screencast at www.screencast-o-matic.com). If you would like to use a tablet, feel free to borrow one for a period from the math office. Be creative! You will need to include all formulas and all of the steps required to come up with your answer for your story. Please email me the link to your Prezi by the beginning of class on Thursday 2/23.
