The messsage below is another good reason to join AMTNYS:) This was last week's news to those of us who were there at the conference in Rye.

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.

Hi Listservers,
I'm trying to figure out if the (+) topics, specifically trigonometry of nonright 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.
