This unit gives students the opportunity to solve problems using the ideas of sohcahtoa and Pythagoras in a right angled triangle.

The unit contains questions on basic triangles, triangles in a circle and  general problems. It is anticipated that these questions would be of use to pupils in S3 and S4 studying for Credit maths in Scottish schools. The questions are at credit level and are typical of the standard which would be expected in a fourth year external exam.
