Unit Circles


Mini Unit Circlespaper fasteners


This Unit Circle Handouts document contains unit circles that can be copied on card stock and handed to students in Algebra II and PreCalculus for reference angles. Marks are in 15 degree increments, so have students label 0 degrees, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 145, etc. Then once you have introduced radian measure, have them label accordingly. The second page includes arrows that can be cut out. Use a single hole punch and paper fasteners to complete the spinners. My Algebra II and PreCalculus students found this simple manipulative to be one of their favorite handouts all year.

Unit Circle Projector Version should be used when explaining how to label the spinner.
