Go over homework and pass into black bin. 
Do practice 5.3 #19-24, pg 293 (textbook) #6 - 14 and create 4 fair questions for the potential final exam.  By fair, I mean if you were taking the exam could you do the questions.  See you Wednesday which by the way I will have to leave early due to my youngest has kindergarten screening at 1:00 in Farmington.

Looking at word problems involving trigonmetric functions with a given angle.  Then exploring word problems without an angle and solving using the inverse.  By Thursday, my hope is to go outside and put this to the test by finding heights of certain objects using a theodolite.

Today we will be investigating right triangles with manipulatives.  Then we will solve right triangles even when only two sides are given.

March 20, 2012

After the Function Values of Angles of Any Size worksheet is done. Investigate reciprocal trigonometric functions using the textbook.  Read and take notes on pgs 749 and 750.  Keep in mind the way to evaluate the function at hand is finding the basic function at that value and flipping the answer.  Remember to rationalize the denominator.  Then try problems p752 #1-28

Tuesday March 6, 2012

Read and take notes from pages 720- 722 about the sine function.  Do questions #1-15 on pg 724 and on p 760 # 1- 11.  If there are any questions please write down the problem and make necessary comments so they can be answered tomorrow.

Thursday February 23, 2012

Today we will be reviewing sine/cosine, coterminal angles and arc length.  Sector area will be a new concept.  Expect a quiz on sine/cosine, and coterminal angles tomorrow. After the assessment the class will be explore tangent using the unit circle.

Tuesday February 21, 2012

Exploring the length of arcs and where it is used is the topic for today.  Reviewing radian measure will be addressed as well.  Cw pg 716 #20-22 with Hw pg 716 #26, 27, 29, 31-41odd, 47, 48

Unit Circle Pictures

We will be continuing with the unit circle.  The unit circle project will be due at the end of today and the questions on the back of the directions worksheet will be due on Monday.

On Monday we will be investigating radians by doing an activity involving radii.
