RE: Algebra 2 Trig Question
Posted: Dec 12, 2013 10:35 AM

There are contradictions in the newly released guidelines for graphing
calculators,
http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/math/ccmath/ccguidelinesgraphingcalculat
or.pdf

This document says trig regressions are included in Algebra II. It also
says quadratic inequalites and power regressions are in Algebra I.

There are some other surprises in this document: "complete sentences
should also be used to support results so that mathematical reasoning can
be easily interpreted." Does this mean rubrics will require complete
sentences?

Sine regression is not part of that curriculum. However, quadratic and
trig word applications are part of the curriculum.

Subject: Algebra 2 Trig Question

Is sine regression part of the Algebra 2 Trig curriculum? I was under the
assumption that linear, exponential, power and logarithmic regression only
was.

Also are quadratic and trig word applications part of the curriculum? I
know they were in Math B and I thought they are also in Algebra 2 Trig

Thanks....Liz Donahue, East Islip High School

Teachers are being evaluated by subjects they are not teaching, and in some
cases on the basis of tests by students they do not have in class. Going
out of the building for grading regents is small potatoes compared to that.

If a teacher is being evaluated on different classes don't you think that
this would become a big issue?

I think a lot of teachers would go straight to the union.
