- A review of Algebra & square roots.
- An investigation of 30-60 and 45-45 right triangles.
- One really good classwork problem.
Notes & Revisions:
- This was not the slamdunk I thought it would be. For next year, I’ll definitely slap some more examples up there, flash-card-style. (Give a triangle, one side and one unknown.)I specifically shied from the x, 2x, xrad3, formulaic approach, but by our second confusing day so many students were drawing little cookie cutter templates using the formula, I’ll probably teach it next year.Typically, I plan so much and so rigorously I’m unsurprised by the instructional outcomes. I have no choice but to chalk this one up as a loss.
