I think this will be a wonderful addition to what I already do. Since we use a specific color for 30, 45, and 60, I plan to use the same color.<br /><br />Thank you!!!!!!

So the values of sine and cosine are the same except for the sign of cosine so we call it the reference angle because if you know it in the first quadrant you can just reflect it for the other 3 quadrants (reflect twice to get to 3rd quad)cathy olshefskinoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10220498.post-70458882334605452912014-11-16T22:00:36.162-06:002014-11-16T22:00:36.162-06:00So I'm teaching trig for the first time this y...So I'm teaching trig for the first time this year and I understand nothing. Why IS that the reference triangle for 5pi/6? I have only done coterminal and reference angles in degrees so far. I was thinking I could use this to introduce radians and then have them practice coterminal and reference angles again in radians before reference trianlges. Does that even make sense?

I probably would have stayed in the class instead of asking for a transfer. I loved the way you used the different colors for the radians and special reference angles and had the students place them on separate sheets in their notebook, making it easier to understand in their studies. I also I like how you use non-traditional ways to teach math. In the future, I tend to direct my students, that may be having problems in math, to your blog. I hope your blog will help them. Finally, I have included a link to my <a href="http://www.taylorsammiedm310.blogspot.com/2014/09/c4t1.html" rel="nofollow">blog post</a> for you to read. Have a great school year!

Meg, funny story: I was rushing rushing rushing through radians and special triangles and unit circle, and then I actually went back to look at our plan (after the fact) of what/how/when my buddy teacher and I would teach stuff, and Lo and Behold, I was supposed to slow down and do something like this a day or 2 ago. Oops. Better late than never, right? RIGHT?!?!?!? At least I'm telling myself that.SDadmehrhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12478674481124549798noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10220498.post-31905914269218623582014-09-09T17:00:24.106-05:002014-09-09T17:00:24.106-05:00Could you please start doing awesome lessons two d...Could you please start doing awesome lessons two days before I teach the same topic instead if two days after??? :) but at least I can keep this in my back pocket for May in alg II!
