Unit circle practice with movement-based activities and games!
How can educators help their students memorize the unit circle? Kinesthetically! Our Unit Circle Hop makes math practice fun, energetic, and engaging. With this large-scale labeled unit circle, you can bring movement-based unit circle games and activities to your classroom.
Our Unit Circle Hop floor mat features a completely labeled unit circle from 0° to 360°. The mat also includes cartesian coordinates along the X and Y axis, with the points (0,1), (-1,0), (0,-1), and (1,0) labeled. With its large size, fun colors, and easy-to-read text, this hop mat is sure to keep young mathematicians visually engaged.
At a size of 5ft by 5ft, this mat has ample space for multiple students to interact on it at one time. Promote a collaborative learning environment and make your unit circle activity larger than life!
Above all, kids learn best while they are moving. Physical activity boosts learning comprehension and improves memory retention. Therefore, remembering the unit circle and memorizing reference angles will come easy to your students.
As a result of moving their bodies on this mat, students will have a better understanding of angles, the coordinate plane, and a circle’s shape, diameter, and circumference. Furthermore, you can practice more advanced topics including finding pi and recognizing complementary and supplementary angles. Students will be well prepared to learn trigonometric functions.

- Ask the student to add 15°. What angle is 30° plus 15°?
- Repeat the exercise adding on 30°, 60°.
- Have the student stand on 45°.
- Ask the student to add 45°.
- Have the student stand on other points on the mat.
- Ask the student to add or subtract angles.
