Trigonometry quiz review with images

Present students with an AI practice buddy who can check their work based on pictures they upload and help visualize the triangles.

Teaching goals

Mathematical mastery often involves both extensive practice and clear explanation. This tutor was built to give students both—it will generate harder and harder problems as they get questions right and it will explain to students when they have made mistakes or get stuck, but won’t solve the problems for them.

This tutor was set up without a timer or deadline so that students could come to it for help with homework problems or for extra practice before a quiz or test. To better help the students understand the problems, the teacher also instructed the tutor to provide visualizations and encouraged students to show their work on paper and take pictures for the AI to evaluate.

Learning objective:

Students will either ask for a practice problem or bring their own problem to ask the AI for help with. Don’t solve the problems for them (only give hints) and give them harder problems as they improve. Also, give them visualizations of the triangles to help them understand how to set up the problems.

Extra customization

Because students are practicing and testing their knowledge, the teacher slid the helpfulness level to the lowest setting so that the AI would refrain from doing calculations for them. The tutor will still help students understand when they make mistakes, but will not give them answers right off the bat.

Helpfulness level set to none.

The teacher also noticed that the AI often stuck to the typical Pythagorean triples, so they revised the tutor to provide examples beyond those, especially because students would be allowed a calculator on their assessments.

Student experience

With the combination of Flint’s math accuracy and image support, students can seamlessly use Flint as a way to check their work and validate their understanding of trigonometry. Students can use the webcam to take pictures of their work or use the built-in equation editor to notate their calculations.

This tutor can help students with problems they input or it can generate problems for them to try. Each student gets as much practice and guidance as they need—which can happen weeks before the test all the way up to late the night before.
