For their final project, students in my trigonometry class were asked to create a video that demonstrates concepts they learned this trimester. Students
were given handouts of the project guidelines and scoring rubric.
I have used this project several times through the years with my Precalculus and AP Calculus students. Past projects have included “Charlie’s Angles” and a soap opera, “As the World Turns 360 degrees.” This year’s projects include a version of “Mythbusters” where students use trigonometry to test myths: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTkY7bkDBbQ
