Right Triangle Trigonometry with Clinometers
I've been going out of my way this year to make my geometry classes more applicable. At the first of the year my kids really struggled, so I've tried to re-invent the way I teach. I'm doing a lot more application and less theory. I'm not saying that's the way it should be done, just that this is what works with my particular group of students.

The problem is always an extension of what we are studying that week in class. I put each new challenge up on Monday morning and students have until the end of the day on Thursday to turn in their solutions to the turn in basket pictured. We go…
