What are the key points that make this tutorial compelling?

  • It packs a punch!

    The approach does not appear to be very different from a traditional approach, yet, in practice, it is a paradigm shift.

  • Increased student agency and understanding

    During the early lessons, students are immersed in the trigonometry rather than in the task of replicating one procedure at a time. As a result, their understanding and sense of agency is greater compared to a traditional approach.

  • Easy to implement

    Anyone can implement this approach.

Course curriculum

You might be wondering ...

  • How long will this micro course take me to complete?

    About 40-60 minutes if worked through thoroughly. The micro-course comprises two excellent videos and some practical, feet-on-the-ground reading.

  • I’ve taught trigonometry ‘a hundred times’. And I teach it well. How likely am I to want to change my approach?

    If you are not open to changing your approach, then I suggest you don't waste your time looking at any alternative approach. However, there's a limiting factor in teaching: WE DON'T KNOW WHAT WE DON'T KNOW. Hundreds of teachers - many of them experienced - have been exposed to this approach, and the vast majority have been super-impressed. However, there is only one way to find out if you'll find this approach impressive ... dive on in! But don't skim the details!
