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
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.
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.
