How Do You...Vectors

How Do You...Vectors | Teaching DP Mathematics | Scoop.it
This is a series of six posts about how I approach topics in Pre-Cal. They
represent a sample of what I get the most questions about which always seem
to start "how do you..."

Objective

Students can define a vector as an arrow of varying length pointed in a
particular direction. Student can compose a right triangle from a vector by
finding the horizontal and vertical components of the vector. Students can
combine vectors in component form or with given magnitudes and directions

The Unit Circle –

The Unit Circle – | Teaching DP Mathematics | Scoop.it
We just wrapped up our intro to radian measure in Trig, which includes the unit circle. My personal philosophy is that students don't really need to memorize the unit circle, because if you understand where it comes from, you can always derive it. I've done a "build the unit circle" activity for a few years,…
