Lesson Idea Name: Presentation of Content

Content Area: Right Triangle Geometry
Content Standard Addressed: MGSE9-12.G.SRT.8 Use trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean
Theorem to solve right triangles in applied problems.
OR
MGSE9-12.G.SRT.6 Understand that by similarity, side ratios in right triangles are properties of the
angles in the triangle, leading to definitions of trigonometric ratios for acute angles.
OR
MGSE9-12.G.SRT.7 Explain and use the relationship between the sine and cosine of complementary
angles
(The specific standards met will depend on the topic the students choose to present)

Lesson idea implementation: This project could fall at the end of a unit as a way for students to show what
they have learned or could be used in the beginning as a way to let them teach their peers about the
concepts. Students will be split into groups and asked to pick a topic they want to do their project on. They
can choose anything from the standards (Pythagorean Theorem, trigonometric function, triangle similarity,
conic sections, etc.). I would encourage the groups to pick different topics so the projects will not all be the
same. The students will then be asked to create a video on PowerPoint including the required information
about their chosen topic (history, definition, example, real life application). I included a very generic list of
slides I used, as well as, a completed example below. Students will be asked to create and narrate their video
within their group. Each person in the group should have a specific job assigned to them to ensure everyone
contributes. After the students create their videos they will be asked to share them with the class.
Instructions on how to create the video in PowerPoint:
After the slides of the presentation are completed click on the Slideshow tab.
On the slideshow tab you will see this button

Click this button

The timer will start immediately. Complete recording for each slide, then play the slide show to watch the
video.
