What is Trigstar?
Professional Land Surveyors use the Trig Star program to advance communication with the communities they serve.
The purpose of the program is:
- To promote the study of trigonometry in high school and to promote excellence in the mastery of trigonometry by honoring the individual student who has demonstrated superior skill among classmates at the High School level.
- To acquaint the high school geometry and trigonometry students with the use and practical application of geometry and trigonometry in the surveying profession.
- To build an awareness of surveying as a profession among the mathematically-skilled high school students, career guidance counselors and high school math teachers.
What happens during the Trig-Star Contest?
A presentation by a Land Surveyor to help participants understand the Land Surveying/ Geomatics Profession. The exam is a timed exercise, during which students must solve trigonometric problems that incorporate the use of the right triangle formulas, the law of sines, and the law of cosines. The student with the highest score and fastest time will be named the "Trig Star" for each high school participating in the program. The scores and times of the Trig Stars are reviewed to determine the State Winner and Runner-up in California. The State Winner will qualify to take the National Exam.
The Trig Star program is sponsored nationally by the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
