# Illuminations: Trigonometry for Solving Problems

Help your students understand the broad uses of trigonometry as a tool in problem solving. With this lesson students will reinforce their understanding of identifying equivalent trigonometric expressions while also working in small groups that help work on communication skills. Included is a downloadable trig puzzle to match equivalent expressions that can be used in small groups. There are also two activity sheets that address applying trigonometric solutions to specific situations. Suggested answers are given, but answers may vary depending on how students interpret the problems.
