### Learning objectives

### Notes for teachers

Many teachers and students feel that Trigonometry is a difficult to understand subject. One reason for this is that Trigonometry is multi-concept based. A student should know following concepts well

- of measuring-angles, triangle and right-angled triangle,
- Pythagoras theorem,
- ratios,
- proportionality
- Identities.
- Trigonometry also require students insight, visualization, and perceptual ability.

# Project Ideas

**PROJECT 1.**

**Calculation of angle of elevation**

Trigonometry is around us.In this project ,we will apply our knowledge of trigonometry to shadows in order to calculate the angle of elevation to the sun at different times of day.

** Procedure of Project:** To calculate the angle of elevation of the sun go through the procedure

- Measure your height and the length of the shadow you cast at two different times of day [at least 3 hours apart]
- Record the times and measurements [with units]
- Draw the right triangle in this scenario.
- Label the sides of your drawing with your measurements and angle of elevation
- Solve for the angle of elevation while clearly showing all your steps

**Note for teachers**

Don't forget that you need to do the procedure above twice two different times in a day.
