- College Trigonometry Radians - This is a POGIL-like activity where students explore radians, and how to find the value of a trigonometric function where the input is in radians. Students are assigned the four roles of Manager, Reporter, Reflector, and Recorder, but other roles could also be assigned. This activity should take about 45 to 50 minutes. This file contains the student facing version of the document.
- College Trigonometry Radians - Notes - This is the instructional guide for the above activity.
- College Trigonometry Radians - Solutions - This is the faculty facing version of the document with solutions and facilitation notes. The 'eyeball' symbol is a note for faculty to check solutions of these questions as they are important for future development of the concept. Question numbers that are bold faced and underlined are to be reported out by students with the Reporter role.
- Week 00 Binder Check-List - In order for students to organize their materials, students are assigned Binder Check-Lists each week. This is a template version for the Winter 2018 term. These are checked weekly to ensure that all students have their materials organized, increase accountability, and provide an opportunity for intervention if needed. Note that online homework (WAMAP) is to be completed online, and their work in answering these questions is to be written down on paper. This provides the benefits of the online environment (check solutions instantly, repeated attempts, etc.) with the benefits of completing paper homework (work with notation, develop sense memory of working on mathematics, etc.)
- Activity Reflection - To ensure that students use class time effectively, and to increase their own metacognition of the day's material, this activity reflection is given if students complete that day's activity. This form could also be used to create a differentiated classroom, where early finishers of an activity could complete as much of this form as time allows, and then report out on the top two to three things they found in reviewing the activity.
- Reading Checklist - Reading a mathematics textbook is very dissimilar to reading a novel, or even a history textbook. To help students recognize this difference, and to develop their skills in 'reading' a math textbook, students complete this checklist for one section a week. It is highly recommended that they complete this form for other sections.
