An old test question I like.

This is an estimation problem.  You should estimate the angles. Janie starts at the home (the origin) and goes 12.45 meters west and 17.11 meters north, describe her position relative to the positive x-axis in terms of a (a) positive angle,   (b) negative angle,   (c) reference angle.

 

Just a little Algebra 2 for your day.

  1. I think you should tell Dr. Braun to put this problem on my next test. I like it a lot.
    Also, this blog is the bomb.com. But I promise that this is the last time I will ever comment. I feel like this is similar to the “coat-stealing” incident, so expect some sort of present in return:)
