Students will be able to use trigonometric functions to model real world data.

Big Idea

Students collect data and use trigonometry to describe their world by modeling the data on posters.

Warm Up

5 minutes


30 minutes

I expect students to come to class today with their real world data. After the warm-up, students will begin working on their posters. All the expectations and grading details are provided on the Student Handout: Real World Data Project Expectations. I will present page 3 of the flipchart, Day 1 of 4 - Real World Data Trig Project, to set the goals of each class period for the next three days. Today, students should organize and display their data on their poster and make a scatter plot of the information (MP2, MP4).
