G.SRT.11 Understand and apply the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines to find unknown measurements in right and non-right triangles (e.g., surveying problems, resultant forces).

Procedures:

***Be aware that due to the senstitivity of trig functions, rounding in the middle of a problem can affect the answer a great deal. It is suggested that you work through the problems yourself in advance to best direct students. A.) In “Triangulation” students will practice sketching diagrams and will attempt Law of Sines and Law of Cosines problems with three different initial conditions. ***Students will be challenged with using the navigational directions such as 10 degrees west of north. It is worth sketching a few of these to practice first. This skill will be in each of the assignments and needs to be mastered. B.) In “Forensics” students will engage in higher order thinking to develop strategies for using fictitious cell phone data. With each problem, students are asked to look at cell phone records and determine the locations of the cell phones using the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines. The two problems are slightly different because the cell phone towers are horizontal in one example and vertical in the other. C.) In “Catch the Suspect” students will analyze the cell phone records of 4 suspects. Students will compare the locations of the phones with the known locations of the crimes. Students will use their results to determine which suspect is most likely to have committed the crime. Please note the different scale of the graphs. This will affect the responses if it is not accounted for. This graph also includes four total towers, which will challenge students to flexibly think vertically and horizontally. On the Analysis page students are asked to articulate their evidence in a paragraph response. * Aspects of the project can be completed independently. The entire project does not need to be completed to have a great learning experience, though it is suggested because it will best scaffold the skills and context.

Triangulation

As the world becomes increasingly reliant on mobile technology, we have never been more connected. As a cell phone searches for a signal, its location is pinpointed and coordinated across a number of applications. Your precise location is used on a Google Map or even Facebook. Cell towers can determine how strong a signal is to a specific phone (i.e. how far away the phone is from the tower) and the general direction the phone is from the tower. The Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines can be used in these cases to get a better sense of where an individual phone may be located.

In each of these problems, information is relayed from two cell towers (the western and the eastern), but there is missing information that is needed. These towers are along the same theoretical horizontal line as seen on the right. (CAUTION: Be careful when reading the angles. If a direction is given like 5o east of north, then that would mean 85o on the traditional protractor with a theoretical horizontal)

1. Two Directions. The western and eastern cell towers are 10 miles apart. From the western cell tower, a phone signal is 10o north of east. From the eastern cell tower, the signal is 20o west of north. How far away is the cell phone from each of the towers? Sketch a diagram.

2. One Direction, One Distance. The distance between two cell towers is 42 miles. From the

western cell tower, a phone signal is 20o north of east and is 48 miles away. How far is this cell phone from the eastern cell tower? Sketch a diagram.

3. Two Distances. The distance between the two towers is 38 miles. From the western cell

tower a phone is 21 miles away, and from the eastern cell tower the same phone is 52 miles away. Determine the angles and the directions from each of the cell towers. Sketch a diagram.

Forensics

In the present, important ethical questions about surveillance are being asked. The idea that people can be watched at any time is highly controversial. However, some agree that there are some avenues where this could be a good thing.

The world of forensics is glamorized on TV shows like CSI and often is associated with dissecting a crime scene, combing for hair samples and swabbing for a trace of DNA. In the tech era, mobile devices are used as forensics evidence in court. Since mobile phones can be tracked at all times, proving that a suspect was at a certain location at a certain time has become more scientific. To date, thousands of criminal cases have been proven with forensic cell phone evidence. Some in law enforcement are optimistic that advances in technology may mean that at some point there could be a foolproof system where a criminal cannot get away with a crime.

In this assignment you must use the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines to determine where a cell phone travels based on its records. (Please Note: since the world is a sphere and not a plane, this activity is only a simulation and a more simplified version of what professionals actually do.)

Catch the Suspect

A serial crime spree has rocked a university campus. Robberies occurred at a number of places from 1:00AM to 1:40AM. Based on a preliminary investigation, police know that it was just one person who committed all the crimes. They have compiled a list of four suspects and have secured search warrants to seize their cell phone records. They hope that these records will determine the identity of the guilty party. Please note that since the world is a sphere and not a plane, this activity is only a simulation and a more simplified version of what professionals actually use. In this assignment you must use the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines to determine where a cell phone was located based on its records. Below is a map of 16,000,000 ft2 of campus. Stars denote the four locations that reported a robbery.

Analysis of Investigation

Use the results of your cell phone forensics investigation to answer the following questions.

1. Based on your analysis of the cell phone data, are there any suspects that can be ruled out? Why or why not?

2. After careful analysis of surveillance footage, it has been determined that the robbery at the Global Studies Center occurred at 1:25. Does that affect the results of your investigation?

3. In a paragraph, use your research to determine which suspect is most likely to have committed the crimes. Provide a detailed analysis in regards to why you believe one suspect is more likely than another. You can provide an explanation why certain suspects may be ruled out.
