Re: Trigonometry Practice Solving Triangles

Hi MathsisFun;

Interesting idea, played with it and think it is useful. Found this problem:

Sometimes the numbers overlap the sides. Not severe here but a little confusing. I have the same problem when I draw one of these by hand, where to place the labels.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Hi MathsIsFun,

The pages are interesting and informative. The pages are well designed.

Re: Trigonometry Practice Solving Triangles

Hi MathsIsFun

I think these are great for students needing to practise.  I'm guessing they're randomly generated so placing the labels is bound to be tricky.

Am I being thick?  I didn't see a link to the answers.

Re: Trigonometry Practice Solving Triangles

I didn't explain at all. Click on (say) Law of Sines button, then click on a highlighted variable.

(It is a little too "minimalist" at the moment!)

Hi MathsisFun;

What do you have in mind for it?

Re: Trigonometry Practice Solving Triangles

Student practice? Do you have any good ideas for it?

Hi MathsIsFun;

You can add the law of tangents.
