IN COLLECTION

The topics covered in Unit 9 include: Squares and Square Roots, The Real Number System, Angles, Triangles, The Pythagorean Theorem, The Distance and Midpoint Formulas, Similar Triangles and Indirect Measurement, Sine, Cosine, and Tangent Ratios.

The Similar Triangle Rocket project is a group activity that focuses on the application of right and similar triangles as applied to rocket flight.

This activity sheet explains rocket triangulation. The objective is to use your knowledge of similar triangles to determine the total vertical height covered by a soda bottle rocket in flight. We will also use our understanding of trigonometry to double-check the total vertical height. The file is saved as a Word 1997-2004 .doc document.

This resource explanations how to make an inclinometer. An inclinometer is a device that we will construct to help us determine the height of a soda bottle rocket. The file is saved as a Word 1997-2004 .doc document.

This powerpoint explains the preparation of the a bottle rocket. The goal is to use the rocket’s motion (parabolic… hopefully) to enhance our understanding right and similar triangles.The file is saved as a PowerPoint 1997-2004 .ppt presentation.
