Chapter 8 Trig Graphs – a PowerPoint outlining the important information in Chapter 8 that pupils need to learn. Details have been omitted from diagrams, so that you can add them as you go through the presentation with the students.

Trig Jigsaw made using the Tarsia software – match the sin, cos, tan of an angle to its correct value. Designed to reinforce the inverse trig function on a calculator. Pupils should work in small groups (2 or 3 per group)

Trig Dominoes – 12 pairs of questions and answers on basic trig (finding sides and angles). The dominoes should form a continuous loop, so there are no start or finish cards. Designed for work in small groups.
