Lightbulb [Video] The true use of Unit Circle

Unit circle is just a circle to many, but an extremely useful tool for those who know how to use it.

Thanks from Joppy

I haven't watched the video, but the image looks like Khan of the eponymous online "academy" had a stroke.

I did not watch ALL the video, but its thesis is that most videos on the unit circle are incomplete.

That may be so. This video, however, strikes me as being very busy and very fast paced. The narrator has very good spoken English, but it understandably is not perfect British or American English. The admittedly small defects in spoken English compound the problem of fast pace.

Based on the approximately 50% I watched, it looks like a fine tool for reviewing the unit circle, but maybe not a great tool for introducing the unit circle.
Thanks from Joppy and RedstoneGate

My main qualm is things like,

Quote:
...We get two triangles with 90 degrees between their hypotenuse,I don't know if you have heard of this, but this three right angle thing is pretty much common sense in China.
I've noticed similar statements and comparisons being said in your other videos also. Personally i think it would be best to eliminate this sort of thing and just focus on the math .

If you think something might warrant further explanation because you believe that some people may not know it, then maybe go off on a small tangent to explain it or something .

But overall good video man, keep it up .

Thank you all!

Indeed. I planned this video as an extension of Unit Circle, so those who watch this are assumed to have learnt the basics of unit circle already.

Now that someone finally pointed out that I went too fast, I'll stop amplifing my speed next time :P.
