Focus DoDEA Standards Assess Practice Teach Part 3: Standards & Planning Unpacking the Standards • Essential Understanding & Guiding Questions • Inquiry & Conceptual-based Learning • Formative and Summative. • Differentiated Instruction
Standards & Planning Using this standard… MA.2.8: Apply the laws of sines and cosines to solving problems; Example: For a standard baseball field (square), the pitcher’s mound is 46 feet from home plateand the distance between bases is 60 feet. Find the distance from the pitcher’s mound to first base
Standards & Planning …along with the Essential Understandings & Guiding Questions… 1. Trigonometric functions can be used to model circular motion and other periodic phenomena - What is the connection between right triangle trigonometry and circular trigonometry? 2. Trigonometric graphs are easily distinguished by their repetitive nature. - What are the basic shapes of trigonometric graphs? - Compare and contrast the characteristics of trigonometric graphs and their inverses. - How do modifications to the basic functions affect the graphs of the functions?
