Subject: Re: Trigonometry supplement

Dan, I'm not sure if you meant a written supplement, or an online program... Here are a couple of Internet resources that look like they might be useful. 1. S.O.S. Mathematics - Trigonometry Learning units presented in worksheet format review the most important results, techniques and formulas in college and pre-college trigonometry. http://www.sosmath.com/trig/trig.html 2. Tutornet - Live Interactive Tutoring An interactive Web site featuring teacher-moderated chat rooms to help students with tough homework problems in Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. Tutorials are scheduled in the afternoon hours when students can access the site from school settings or their homes, and in early evening hours, with hours tailored to the local time of the students. As students log on, they select the subject area that they want help with and are then placed in the classroom with the fewest number of students at the time, greeted by a "Netucator," and invited to type or write their question. Tutornet.com allows students to print or save their work for later reference. Subscription payments of $59.99/month for unlimited access are made on-line using a secure credit card link. http://www.tutornet.com/ 3. Math Planet A site for high school students featuring algebra, geometry, and geometry concepts glossaries; crash courses on basic Algebra and Geometry; an advanced course on Algebra and Trigonometry; a customizable lesson plan based on individual level http://library.thinkquest.org/16284/index_s.htm 4. Dave's short course in trigonometry An introduction and a guide to trigonometry, with hints and answers to exercises, and Java applets as illustrations, for which you'll need a Java-enabled browser (Netscape 2 or later). Contents include applications of trigonometry, angle measurement, chords, sines, cosines, tangents and slope, the trigonometry of right triangles, the trigonometric functions and their inverses, oblique triangles, and a summary of trigonometric identities. http://aleph0.clarku.edu/~djoyce/java/trig/ Hope that helps... -Pat Ballew, for the Teacher2Teacher service
