Objective: I know how to solve trigonometry applications or problems.

Hints on solving trigonometry applications or problems:

If no diagram is given, draw one yourself.

Mark the right angles in the diagram.

Show the sizes of the other angles and the lengths of any lines that are known

Mark the angles or sides you have to calculate.

Consider whether you need to create right triangles by drawing extra lines. For example, divide an isosceles triangle into two congruent right triangles.

Decide whether you will need Pythagoras theorem, sine, cosine or tangent.

Check that your answer is reasonable. The hypotenuse is the longest side in a right triangle.

Fill in all the gaps, then press "Check" to check your answers. Use the "Hint" button to get a free letter if an answer is giving you trouble. You can also click on the "[?]" button to get a clue. Note that you will lose points if you ask for hints or clues!

We hope that the free math worksheets have been helpful. We encourage parents and teachers to select the topics according to the needs of the child. For more difficult questions, the child may be encouraged to work out the problem on a piece of paper before entering the solution. We hope that the kids will also love the fun stuff and puzzles.
