1. Imagine that the kicker chooses to go back 5 metres from C along
OC. Draw a diagram to represent this situation. Find the measure of
angle AOC and BOC using your knowledge of the tangent function
(tan) and hence find the size of the angle AOB (the kicker’s room for
error). Quote answers correct to 2 decimal places.
2. Repeat part 1, but for the case where the kicker chooses to go back
10 metres.
3. Repeat part 1, but for the case where the kicker chooses to go back
15 metres.
4. Repeat part 1, but for the case where the kicker chooses to go back
20 metres.
5. Repeat part 1, but for the case where the kicker chooses to go back
25 metres.
6. Tabulate your solutions to parts 1 to 5. Describe what appears to
happen to the kicker’s room for error as the distance that the kick is
taken from the goal line increases.
