Learning Area:Math Lesson Focus: Bearings, Elevation & Date: 31 Aug 17 Year Level: 11 Methods

Trigonometry Depression Time: 1425

Period: L6

Learning Area Outcome/s: 1. understand concepts and techniques in trigonometric functions, 2. Solve problems using trigonometric functions, 3.

Interpret and evaluate mathematical information and ascertain the reasonableness of solutions to problems, 4. Communicate their arguments and

strategies when solving problems

At the conclusion of this learning experience each student should be able to:

a) Review sine, cosine and tangent as ratios and Sid lengths in right-angled triangles

b) Examine the relationship between the angle of inclination of a line and the gradient of that line

c) Establish and use tangent, cosine and sine rules.

Assessment:

Formative: Students continue lesson with exercises at the end of the chapter

progress.

Students Prior Knowledge: Be able to solve right-angled triangle problems including those involving direction and angles of elevation and

depression (ACMMG245)

Preparation and Resources: Preparation by doing the lesson plan and taking teaching notes in to use while teaching. Examples derived from text

book, Mathematics Applications Unit 2 by A.J. Sadler 1st Edn. Demonstration and problem solving on the white board. Students will have pens/

pencils and notebooks to work through the problem and a copy of the text book to follow the lesson and do the exercises at the end of the Chapter

Lesson Evaluation:

(Reflect on the lesson. What worked? What did not work? What would you change? Why?)

What Worked?

The diagram I presented on the board provided a good example of angles and bearings and allowed me to step through each problem in order to

examine trigonometric functions and remain on track with the learning outcomes. With the bearings example, I attempted to relate bearings to a

reference point and use my experience from the Navy which allowed me to easily explain the meaning and the terminology of a bearing. Since this

was a new concept, the language of bearings was important so I placed a lot of emphasis on this so students would understand the difference when

discussing an angle or a bearing.

The exercises in the textbook are designed to follow on from the lesson and to test students on their knowledge of techniques of solving the

problems which is a very important step in understanding, interpreting and evaluating mathematical information. I saw this as a formative

assessment of the content and I walked around the classroom to ensure students remained on task and to answer any questions about the exercises.

What did not work?

I thought my planning went well and covered all the requirements of the task however, I struggled to implement the plan when I began teaching

the lesson. I found the diagram I used for the example was sound and it gave me the ability to step through the fundamentals identifying the

problems that required solving. However, I believe my planning let me down and I did not fully appreciate the necessity to understand each step

myself before going through it with the students. Luckily for me this was not too much of an issue since the students are in specialist math. If this

was a different class, say a general math class, then I might of perhaps lost the students altogether leaving them unsure of the approach and steps to

solving the problem. Subsequently, this might have required an additional lesson which is most unfavourable since teaching time is at a minimum

during the term.

In future, I will be focussing more on my planning. Since math requires a step by step solution, my future planning will include the following:

a) Firstly I will define the problem, what do we understand or know about the problem.

b) Secondly I will ask the students to help me draw the diagram based our understanding of the problem.

c) Thirdly at each point where problem solving is required I will stop and ask students to attempt to apply a fundamental to solving the problem

for example, now that we have a reference point from position A to position B and given the bearing 070 from true north, I would ask the class

to identify the reciprocal bearing from B to A. This also initiates the language required for bearings.

d) Finally, once we have stepped through the example, I will return to the initial problem and get the students to discuss and reaffirm the concepts

and techniques of solving it.

After satisfying the specific learning goals, students should then be prepared to go through the exercises in the textbook.
