This free guide will assist teachers in teaching the unit circle without memorization. By doing this activity, students will have a deep understanding of how degrees, coordinates, special right triangles, and the circumference of a circle all relate to form the unit circle.
It includes a detailed lesson plan with step-by-step directions for teaching with a paper plate, the template for the triangles measured to match the paper plate, and a blank unit circle template for assessing students' understanding.
