In this Law of Cosines worksheet, 10th graders solve 10 different problems related to applying the Laws of Cosine. First, they determine the length of a side rounded to the nearest integer. Then, students determine the largest angle of a triangle described to the nearest degree. In addition, they determine the length of a larger diagonal of a rhombus.
For this law of cosines worksheet, students determine angle measures, area, and number of solutions in five multiple choice problems by applying the law of cosines.  The solutions are provided by clicking on the "Check It" button found on the bottom of the page.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders use the Law of Sines or the law of Cosines to find the missing angle measures of a triangle.  The one page interactive worksheet contains five multiple choice questions.   Answers are included.
Students solve problems using the law of cosines. In this precalculus lesson, students meet different criteria as they solve problems. They apply the formula for cosines to solve word problems.
In this law of cosines worksheet, learners solve problems using the law of sines or the law of cosines. They determine the value of a leg of a triangle and it's measurement. This one-page worksheet contains 16 problems.
In this Law of Cosines worksheet, students are asked to demonstrate the ability to apply the Trigonometric Law of Cosines and the Inverse Law of Cosines to solve for sides and angles of right triangles. 
In this cosine worksheet, students will find the length of the third side of a triangle given the length of the other two side. Students will use the Law of Cosines to find the length of the missing side. Answers will be rounded to 3 decimal places for the length and 1 decimal place for angle measures.
In this activity, geometers are asked to solve a real-world problem involving a construction project on a college campus. Students work in groups to come up with a proposal for the construction. In doing so, they must consider dimensions of some existing structures and propose a solution that meets certain requirements. The solution requires using the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines, as well as application of critical thinking skills. 
In this law of sines and cosines learning exercise, students solve 8 problems finding missing sides and missing angle measures of various triangles.
