Power Point includes animated step-by-step instructions for creating a foldable for identifying the 6 trig functions given a right triangle (sin, cosine, tangent, cosecent, secant, & cotangent). Materials needed for each student: scissors, ruler, 2 to 3 markers, and a piece of cardstock or construction paper.
Mathematical foldables (or graphic organizers) are a great way to put important information at students fingertips. They can be used to introduce concepts or to review them. Foldables are a nice change of pace from regular note-taking and students like doing them. Lastly, they are a great way to differentiate by allowing low performing or special education students to use them on tests or quizzes.
