At the end of the school year, I had my Algebra 2 + Support students do a project. The project was to focus on any unit we had done that semester and create something that reviewed that unit that the rest of the class could also benefit from. I got a lot of things from a comic book, several board games, a ukulele song, and an amazingly edited YouTube video, but my favorite project was TRIGSTER.
This was the project’s instructions:
Now, I present to you…TRIGSTER! Two girls made this game as a twist on Twister. It’s mean to be a very fast-paced game where 4 aspects of trig are reviewed: (1) the trig ratios for the big six functions, (2) abbreviations and connections for big six functions, (3) exact trig values from special right triangles, and (4) reference angles and angles in standard position (as well as a couple of formulas to convert between radians and degrees). I absolutely was blown away by this project and am so excited to play it in the years to come for my future Algebra 2 classes! Students can do amazing things, if we let them.
I’ve included their customized instructions, below.
