My honors precalculus students saw the slope hexaflexagons my geometry students were using and asked when they would get something like that. I promised when we reached our trig unit, I’d whip something up. Below is the result as well as a video explaining how to assemble a hexaflexagon. My hope is that my students become well versed with their reference angles and don’t need to write out a complete unit circle when answering questions this semester.
Here’s a link to download the instructions and a pair of trig hexaflexagons.
This looks like a great resource. I was wondering if you printed it on 8.5″ x 11″ paper or did you use bigger paper? Thanks!
I use 8.5″ x 11 but I’m sure it would scale up via copy machine to legal or possibly 11×17. I need to play with that to offer a larger size to those who prefer it.
