This lesson should be administered after students have developed a conceptual and procedural understanding of the trigonometry ratios. In this task, students will apply the ratios to find missing side lengths and angle measures of right triangles, in terms of a ski hill. Students will use these measurements to determine the difficulty of each ski slope, total length of a ski path, length of a rooftop, and height of a different ski hill.
