Teach 180: A Friendly Reminder (Day 131)

Sometimes as a teacher I forget.  Today I forgot the fact that my students' brains might need a bit more review after a four day weekend. Although we had talked about angles in standard position for about 2 weeks, it was like my students couldn't remember what a radian was or the difference between positive and negative angles.  And the six trig functions in terms of x, y and r?  Yikes!   We did eventually get back into the swing of things, but it took about 30 minutes.  Note to future self.  Build in more targeted review after a long-ish break or even give students 5 minutes to look over their notes from the previous lessons.
