Unit Q Rules, Tips, and Tricks Document - Please comment

I am putting together a document to help (and future students) understand some of the rules with Unit Q a little better.  I would love your help in adding comments and questions on things that don't make sense, or things you always got stuck on.  ALL COMMENTS ARE WELCOME, ALL QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME. I will go through and make clarifications and resolve your comments/questions to make this document as useful as possible.  Please see the document by clicking here.

UNIT Q TEST NOTES

  • Answers for test always go in GREY BOXES.
  • You still must show step by step work.  Don't leave anything out, just make it nice, neat, and readable.
  • If you need more boxes on any of the identity proofs, please neatly divide the box(es) in half for how many you need.  
  • Utilize answer bank for Unit Q Concept 1 & 5 problems. (SEE BELOW)

QUESTIONS:

Q:  do you want pi radians or decimal radians for unit Q? 
A: If the degree is an exact degree, then the radians should be exact radians (with pi). If the degree is a rounded degree, then the radians should be decimals (no pi)
example:
120 degrees should be 2pi/3, not some crazy decimal
122.7degrees should NOT have a pi in the final answer

Q: How do I write/round my answers for #8?
A: Utilize the same process/rules as Unit O Concept 2.  Round to the hundredths

Q: Is #9 a typo?
A: No. Look at your SSS and PQs


**NOTE: #16 - only has TWO answers (cross off the last blank for both degrees and radians)



ANSWER BANK FOR UNIT Q CONCEPT 1 AND CONCEPT 5 
(simplifying/verifying; this includes answers for verifying that are already given to you).
*There are MORE ANSWERS than will be used
*Answers can be used MORE THAN ONCE
*I have changed ALL THE VARIABLES as to not give you an unneeded hint.  On the test, they are all x's, theta's, u's, etc... I have used the variable B for ALL OF THEM even though it's not exact


sin(B)
tan(B)                        
cos(B)

Unit Q Concept 5 Intro Activity - Friday in class

1. In your groups, complete each of the SIX Trig Challenges (six colors).  
  • Use sticky notes to write down which identities or steps were used for each of the steps on the left hand side of your proof.
  • Once you have finished EACH ONE, it must be checked off by the teacher before moving on.
  • Once checked, one person in the group must take a picture of your finished product (with sticky notes showing)
  • Once checked, you can check your group off on the whiteboard for that color
2. ONE PERSON in the group is responsible for sending Mrs. Kirch an email with 6attachments (for each of the 6 images on paper), re-titled appropriately (i.e. Pink-Table A, Green-Table A).
  • PLEASE SEND THIS AS ONE EMAIL AND INCLUDE ALL GROUP MEMBER'S NAMES ON THE EMAIL.
3. Homework:  Complete SSS identities #1-5 with video support.  I will be giving tips and tricks throughout, so it is important that you listen carefully and watch each one.
I also HIGHLY SUGGEST you complete SSS identities #6-11 and start your PQ5!
