Today we split the class into two groups by asking the students who needed more practice going through the Unit Circle and who was ready to move forward and begin using the Unit Circle.
Those who needed more practice with the Unit Circle hung out with Mrs. Barbier and go through a broken down version of the Circle, looking at each of the special right triangles by itself on the circle.
Those who dared move forward, got to hangout with Moylan in the back room, listen to some chill music, and work their way through a worksheet which applied the Unit Circle to find exact values of Sine and Cosine.

Due to the fact that the seniors’ time at DHS is quickly coming to a close, we had to move on from the Unit Circle and began looking at Periodic Functions. We learned how to read the graphs to find their Cycles, Amplitudes, Axes, and Periods.

We finished discussing our notes from yesterday and then brought it all together on a practice worksheet.

Students still needed more practice applying everything we’d been learning for the last two weeks, so Barbier and Moylan came up with another practice review sheet to bring it all together.

Students worked on individual review problems from the board, writing down their work and answers on a sheet of paper to turn in at the end of the hour. Barbier and Moylan then randomly selected students to come up to the board in order to show us how to get the answer.
