On a nice day just a week before school let out for the summer, nine pre-calculus students took to the street to draw a giant Unit Circle in chalk as a part of their trigonometry unit. The students included, left to right: Troy Tellinghuisen, Jayden Cullen, Ben Sullivan, Hannah Honrud, Kayla Hodgen, Analea Erickson, Montana Osterman, Alyssa Studer and Dan Ingebrand.

Taking a concept outside the classroom

Email

It may have been the last week of school, but that didn’t slow down Perham High School’s pre-calculus students.

The class was still hard at work even as the school year neared its end, learning about special triangles and angle properties as a part of their trigonometry unit.

Outside of the school, kids drew a giant unit circle (a standard piece of knowledge in mathematics) in chalk on the street, and then answered questions off of it.
