This workshop has been created for students who are in a mathematics course in which they are learning about trigonometry. It is a fun way to challenge participants and have them apply the knowledge they’ve gained through their mathematics class in the context of a game. The workshop focuses primarily on the trigonometry unit. Throughout the workshop, participants will review the process of solving for angles or side lengths of a variety of triangles using diverse techniques. These techniques include:
- Special triangles
- Trigonometric ratios
- Sine and Cosine laws
The workshop takes the form of an escape room, which means that participants will have to solve a sequence of problems to move from room to room before being able to “escape”. They will work in groups, to successfully complete the escape room.
