Double Angle Identity Activity

Investigate the following things

1. Relationship between Angle and angle 2. Determine the lengths of EF and DF using triangle DEF in terms of angle 3. Determine the lengths of GC, GD and GE in terms of angle


Choose the correct option

Check your answer here

2. From Triangle DEF

What is EF and DF

Check your answer here

3. What are the lengths of GC and GE

Choose the correct option, Hint: Radius of a semicircle is unity and the CE = 1 unit

Check your answer here

4 Use Triangle CDF,Use pen and paper (Remember CE= 1 unit and CD = 2 GC)

Apply Pythagoras theorem to work out the relationship between cos() and cos()

Check your answer here

5. if Triangle ECG and Triangle DCF are similar ( think why)

then using the ratio of sides establish a relationship between DF, GE and DC. ( Try to rewrite them in terms of angles)


For every result discuss your findings with your classmates and teacher.
