Problems totally independent of whatever unit we’re in, just math that isn’t trivial, but is accessible for as many students as possible, and pushes students to think carefully and reason clearly.

I think right triangle trig is a frequent victim of the "First ya do this, then ya do this" treatment -- where kids can solve problems but have no idea what is going on. There's often not a ton of time for it, and it responds well to memorized procedures (in the short […]
