Learning unit: Pythagoras Theorem

Pythaoras Theorem is important in many trades courses that involve construction, including surveying, building, drainage and roading design. These settings require adults to find the unknown length of one side of a right angled triangle give the lengths of the other two sides. The theorem requires an understanding of squaring and finding square roots with both whole number and decimal number measurements.

Learning unit: Teaching Trigonometry

This unit is designed to help tutors who teach courses that use trigonometric (trig) formulae (e.g., sine, cosine and tangent functions). Since trig functions represent ratios between the elements of a triangle, they provide a prime opportunity to develop learners’ proportional thinking skills.

Learning unit: About Time

This unit is designed to help tutors who teach courses in which working with time is important. These courses may involve scheduling of work, calculating with units of time, and working with international time zones.

Learning unit: Metric Measure

This unit is designed to help tutors who teach courses that involve measurement. These courses may involve recognising units, matching units to quantities, measuring, and straightforward conversions between units.
