## GT6 TRIGONOMETRIC IDENTITIES AND EQUATIONS

*By toni On 27 August, 2018 · Leave a Comment*

This workshop reviews reduction formulae in terms of rotations and reflections. It offers learning activities that involve sorting and solving trigonometric equations and finding general solutions, or solutions within a

given domain, using known identities and graphical or unit circle representations. Suggestions are given organising group activies and learners presenting and explaining their ideas […]

Why does this fold create an angle of sixty degrees?

Make a centre crease down the length of the paper then open it up.

Next fold one corner over and onto the centre crease so that the fold line passes through the corner next to it (on the short side of the paper).

You […]
