Motivating Maths at GCSE: Outdoor Trigonometry
In this video resource from Teachers TV Andy Grice, teacher of mathematics at Brune Park Community College in Gosport, delivers a practical lesson on trigonometry to a class of GCSE students. Working in groups, they first estimate the height of four buildings on the school site. They then measure actual distances and angles which are used, back in the classroom, to calculate the heights of the buildings and compare these to their original estimates. Feedback from the students is positive and Andy and his colleagues analyse the success of the lesson and discuss some of the issues that emerged.
