Understand Quandrantal Angles by Examining X and Y Values Near Them

This Understand Quandrantal Angles by Examining X and Y Values Near Them video also includes:

Building off reference triangles, pupils discover that when theta is a multiple of 90º, the coordinates are a combination of 0 or 1. The examples use a regular reference triangle, and increases the value of theta each time to show how the coordinates creep closer to (0,1); even though there can't be a triangle with a side of 0.
