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.
