John Svendson told us at the AMTNYS conference to go by the PARCC document (NOT Appendix A) and he did mention that some (+) topics had been taken out.

I'm trying to figure out if the (+) topics, specifically trigonometry of non-right triangles, is going to be assessed on the NYS 2014 Regents exam. It is specifically mentioned in Appendix A, and we have been told that the (+) topics were "in", but the PARCC Frameworks document that is the new thing doesn't mention them.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
