    Trigonometry Word Wheel

    Hi guys,

    I need to finish a Trigonometry Word Wheel as part of my asignments, but I have no idea how to put the words together.

    There is an example Word Wheel like:

    Given: sand, sun, water, lifeguard, waves, castle, swim and sunscreen

    Solution: lifeguard (job is to save you from drowning in) water (is needed to) swim (is more fun if there is) sun (can burn so wear) sunscreen (gets stuck with) sand (is used to make) castles (are destroyed by) waves (are watched by) liefeguard

    That is like a complete circle.

    My asignment Trigonometry Word Wheel=

    Given: opposite, sine, right angle, side lengths, specified angle, pythagorean theorem, inverse trig ratio, hypotenuse

    I have to create the same word circle with the given words. Please help.

    Well; find what links to what,
    e.g.

    hypotenuse (of a) right angle triangle or
    inverse trig ratio (of) sine and several others - if you build up a vocabulary of possible pair links, you can work out what the actual circle is by elimination

    Thanks Ratpigeon,
    I tried already, but after it's not that easy to put the possible pair links together to get the actual circle.

    Re: Trigonometry Word Wheel

    What do you think about the following?

    inverse trig ratio (of) sine (ratio are calculated using the length of the) hypotenuse (is across from) right angle (is formed by) side lengths (one is called) opposite (is across from) specified angle (

    I do not know where to put Pythagorean Theorem and how to connect everything to a circle.

    Re: Trigonometry Word Wheel

    Here is one plausible scheme of word wheel.
    Side lengths(of a)right angle(triangle are related by)pythagorean theorem(which helps to calculate)sine(of a)specified angle(as the ratio of)opposite(side to)hypotenuse(of the right angle triangle,)inverse trig ratio(relating the angles to ratio of)Side lengths.
