Week of January 28  February 1
Monday Begin the unit circle. Here is a nice visual for step  by  step recap of what we learned in class today. Please evaluate all sin, cos and tan functions on today's worksheet. We will pick up with the reciprocal functions tomorrow.
Here are a blank and completed copy of the unit circle for you to use as at home:
Blank unit circle
Completed unit circle
Remember, it's only necessary to memorize Quadrant I of the unit circle. Quadrant II is a reflection across the y  axis. Look at the diagram below to see how you can reflect again across the x axis and then again across the y  axis to complete all 4 quadrants (with the exception of the signs).
Tuesday: Snow Day!
Wednesday: More unit circle practice
