**Do Bees Build It Best?**Geometry Trigonometry**ANY TWO SIDES WORK**• LEG^2 + LEG^2 = HYP^2**THAT’S ALL THERE IS!**• EACH TRIANGLE MUST HAVE AN AREA OF 2 UNITS • EACH TRIANGLE MUST HAVE ITS VERTICES ON PEGS • EACH TRIANGLE MUST HAVE A HORIZONTAL SIDE**FORMING FORMULAS**• LOOK FOR WAYS TO CUT UP THE PARALLELOGRAMS AND TRAPEZOIDS INTO TRIANGLES**GOING INTO THE GALLERY**• REMEMBER, THE HEIGHT IS ALSO THE ALTITUDE WHICH IS DRAWN PERPENDICULAR TO THE BASE**A RIGHT-TRIANGLE PAINTING**• DRAW A RIGHT TRIANGLE THAT HAS A 55 DEGREE ANGLE • EXTEND BOTH SIDES SO THAT THEY ARE AT LEAST 10 CM IN LENGTH**A TRIGONOMETRIC SUMMARY**• SIN A = OPPOSITE/HYPOTENUSE • COS A = ADJACENT/HYPOTENUSE • TAN A = OPPOSITE/ADJACENT**A HOMEMADE TRIG TABLE**• DRAW A RIGHT TRIANGLE USING THE ASSIGNED ANGLE FOR YOUR GROUP • MEASURE ALL THE SIDES • COMPUTE THE RATIOS OF SIN, COS, AND TAN
