- HSF-TF.B.5Choose trigonometric functions to model periodic phenomena with specified amplitude, frequency, and midline.*
- HSF-TF.B.6(+) Understand that restricting a trigonometric function to a domain on which it is always increasing or always decreasing allows its inverse to be constructed.
- HSF-TF.B.7(+) Use inverse functions to solve trigonometric equations that arise in modeling contexts; evaluate the solutions using technology, and interpret them in terms of the context.â

The Drawbridge - An Introduction to Inverse Sine

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:Use a graphical perspective to establish inverse trig functions.

When Will We Ever Use This

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:Want a good answer to âWhen will we ever use this?â This lesson gives students an opportunity to explore applications of inverse trig functions.

Tangent Modeling

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:This lesson is awesome because it gives your students a connection to tangent periodicity using a real-world example. They generate data and create a tangent equation that fits it.

Here's Proof

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:Pythagoras again!? Make everybody happy â give your students another chance to connect trig functions to something they already understand.

Trig Review

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:If you hate reviewing for an exam, maybe this lesson is for you. Let your students take charge of their review and see how much more you all get out of the process!

Touching Tangents

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Trigonometric Functions

Big Idea:This lesson is awesome because students get to explore tangent graphs and asymptotes with and without a graphing calculator
