Description:

Students may use this lesson to use geometry, trigonometry and GPS to locate a geocache in their area. With a handheld GPS device and the coordinates of the cache, geocachers attempt their own personal treasure hunt. This lesson has two possible strands, one where students create a data set, and one where students use a previously created data set. Student materials including student data sets and a student worksheet may be located here (documents are located in the second column of the table).
