Modeling with Inverse Trigonometric Functions 2

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Use inverse trigonometric functions to work with ramps, rabbits, and Talladega. The class models real-world situations with trigonometric functions and solves them using inverses in the 15th installment of a 16-part series. Pupils solve problems dealing with inclined surfaces and periodic situations.

Instructional Ideas
  • Work with the physics teachers to provide additional problems students can solve using inverse trigonometric functions
  • Have the class graph the periodic problems to get a better understanding of the situation
Classroom Considerations
  • It is beneficial if scholars understand physics as it relates to ramps, but it is not necessary
  • Answer key provides the steps to show how to determine the solution
  • The scaffolding show the forces on an object in different orientations
  • None
