Wile E. Coyote  Modeling with Trigonometric Functions (Writing project)This project requires students to mathematically model the design of a roller coaster using a sinusoidal function to estimate the total cost of construction. *If an instructor would like a student solution just contact one of the authors.

Is the Sine a Circular Function? How about a Star Sine?Students are often challenged by seeing the conncection between the unit circle and the graph of the sine and cosine functions. This activity is designed to take students out of their comfort zone to experience what the "sine" function would look like if it were based upon other geometric figures.

Pythagorean Theorem Investigation: It's As Easy Asâ€¦ a, b, cOftentimes, the Pythagorean Theorem is taught from the standpoint of, "Here is the formula, let's practice finding the lengths of the sides of triangles!" without helping students understand or develop the relationships between the sides on their own. This activity helps students experience those relationships using multiple approaches, prove why the theorem is true, and practice using it.
