I/D#3: Unit Q Concept 1: Pythagorean Identities

INQUIRY ACTIVITY SUMMARY

INQUIRY ACTIVITY REFLECTION
1. The connections that I see between Units N, O, P, and Q so far are that they all have to do with trigonometric functions. They all make sense and can be mathematically derived. 
2. If I had to describe trigonometry in THREE words, they would be ohana, complicated, and mathematical (understandable!).

I/D2: Unit O- Deriving patterns for SRT

-INQUIRY ACTIVITY SUMMARY

-INQUIRY ACTIVITY RESPONSE 
1.Something I never noticed before about special right triangles is where they came from and how that made logical sense.
2.Being able to derive these patterns myself aids in my learning because I understand where and how special right triangles can be derived from a square or an equilateral and it also helps me remember some of their differences and why I shouldn't mistaken their values.
