Day 52: Unit Circle Game
Getting students to know the special Unit circle values can be such a tricky thing. It is some rote memorization, but hopefully rooted in sound conceptual foundation. But how to have students practice in a somewhat meaningful way. Well, the Unit Circle Game is one way.
Last year, I thought the game didn’t have much impact. But a student shared via information I ask for when I write letters of recommendation, that she found the game particularly helpful for her to visualize the values on the Unit circle. So I decided to do it again…but with some modifications in the play to make the game run more smoothly. And it did! Great Friday activity.
