Reflection: Advanced Students Sine and Cosine Day 2 of 2 - Section 1: Bell work


Depending on my students ability I sometimes assign problem 1 on the homework assignment. If the students are struggling with understanding the connection with sine and cosine or how to draw the angles I will give the students more practice.  If I see that the students are grasping the idea. (I know this by moving around the room and spot checking students as well as reflecting on the the questions asked)

Students that are advanced can usually see the connections without doing another set of measuring activities.
