Subject: Non-Right Triangle Trig in NY CCSS Geometry

Hi Listservers,

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.
