Reflection: Checks for Understanding Student Work Day and Individual Conferences - Section 1: Share


Simplifying trigonometric expressions is difficult because there are so many layers. Students must have an understanding of the trigonometric properties while also utilizing a plethora of algebraic strategies.

After our first day of this work we created this list of various techniques that we can use to simplify trig expressions. I told my students that if they had difficulty with the assignment, then practice is the key to improvement. I explained that the more experience they get, the easier it will be able to identify which technique will be key to simplifying.
