Description:

Students understand that the Law of Sines can be used to find missing side lengths in a triangle when you know the measures of the angles and one side length.Students understand that the Law of Cosines can be used to find a missing side length in a triangle when you know the angle opposite the side and the other two side lengths.Students solve triangle problems using the Laws of Sines and Cosines.Teacher and Student versions of full lesson from engageNY
