What is the measure in degrees of a central angle measuring radians?

If you can't remember, calculate.

Now multiply the angle by .

  1. What other angles correspond to the same point on the circle?

    The distance around the unit circle is , no matter what point you start from.

  2. Make a sketch of the unit circle showing the resulting right triangle.

    The angle you are working with, , is more than . How much more?

    Unit Circle, with right triangle, hypotenuse from center, to a point, in first quadrant, on the circle, vertical leg, from point on circle, perpendicular to positive, x axis, horizontal leg, portion of positive, x axis. Curved arrow from hypotenuse, to positive, x axis, labeled, 7 pi thirds.

  3. What are sin, cos and tan exactly?

    Notice that the triangle formed is a triangle.
