"spiders & flies"

Today we learned about "applications of trig".  Also we learned how to find certain lenths on a 3-D object.
Remember there is only 6 things to find on a triangle, 3 angles and 3 sides.
  1. Sometimes a series of right triangles can be drawn of modeled to indicate "hypotenuse of one, becomes the leg of another triangle."                 or
  2. Often trig. problems are multi-step.... (i.e. you must calculate many intermediate 'answer' to get a final one.)
We have our first text book test block 4, wednesday Febuary 23rd.
- trig. unit
