## Questions

### Subject: Trigonometry

Given a circle with any length of a radius, how many radii is the circumference comprised of?

By drawing multiple circles and using their different radii, and by using the internet and other math calculation tools, the student and I will see that, no matter what the radius is, the distance around a circle will be 2pi. This leads directly into radians, and will be the foundation for the rest of trigonometry

### Subject: Geometry

How do we find the area of a parallelogram, generally speaking?

By drawing out a parallelogram, using the internet to see examples of parallelograms, and seeing different labeling methods, the student and I will see WHY the area of the parallelogram is what it is.

### Subject: Algebra

Given a line y=2x, how can we move that line up?

By drawing the line, using the internet to find pictures, and trying some sample numbers, the student and I will learn how the equation can be adjusted to move up. Understanding WHY is what is important.
