#### These types of problems focus on the lengths of sides and angles within a triangle. After all that is what trigonometry is all about. Start to approach these problems by focusing on understanding the figures that are involved and model this by drawing diagrams. On the diagram highlight all the information that we know about each stage of the diagram. Make sure that if a unit of measure is attached to that information that you show that as well. We then start to analyze the system and identify if Pythagorean Theorem comes into play or if we can apply various trigonometric functions to determine the angle of elevation or depression.

In these worksheets, your students will solve word problems involving trigonometry. Diagrams are included to accompany some problems. These are moderately complex problems and a sound understanding of trigonometry is required in order for students to be successful with these worksheets. There are six worksheets in this set. This set of worksheets contains lessons, step-by-step solutions to sample problems, and both simple and more complex problems. It also includes ample worksheets for students to practice independently. Students may require extra paper on which to do their calculations. Most worksheets contain between eight and eleven problems. When finished with this set of worksheets, students will be able to solve word problems that involve trigonometry. These worksheets explain how to solve word problems by using trigonometry. Sample problems are solved and practice problems are provided.
