Basic Unit Circle

This very basic representation of the unit circle displays the unit circle with an input for the standard angle θ in degrees (which controls the angle between the hypotenuse and the x axis). The outputs represent the other two sides of the triangle and give their lengths through decimals.

A good investigation for geometry students is to have them test out different angles here, then compare the results to those testing the angles with sine and cosine on their calculators. This allows them to visualize the unit circle in a precise diagram rather than simply running inputs and outputs on their calculators.
