Students will play games to remember and reproduce the angles in the unit circle in radians and degrees, as well as the trigonometric ratios associated with multiples of special angles in the unit circle. This mission is aligned with Common Core State Standards: HSF.TF.A.3.
The fun stuff:
Are you familiar with SET, or WAR? Here are two fun card games which help students improve the speed and accuracy of their recall of angles and ratios in the unit circle! A dice is rolled to determine the focus of play for each hand, so that students who are just learning about the unit circle or radians can play alongside those who are familiar with the ratios throughout the circle. All the benefits of flash cards with all the fun of a card game!
The zip file includes:
★ Large and small versions of 102 cards showing trigonometric ratios for special angles.
★ The above cards, with patterned backs so they aren’t see through.
★ Instructions for how to play both games.
★ Templates for the dice for the game.
★ A unit circle for students to have handy as they are playing if desired.
Note: The file is pretty large, but as a result the cards look good when printed.
The mission reviews:
• Special angles in degrees and radians, and their multiples through 360 degrees.
• Values of the sine, cosine and tangent of those angles.
• The signs of those ratios.
• The quadrants for those angles.

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
