I seem to recall a lengthy conversation on how to deal with onto functions in Alg2/Trig. I am comfortable with the concept that for a function to be onto, the range must equal the image set. For example f(x) = x^2 is onto the non-negative reals because the range is the non-negative reals. My question is would y = x^2 be onto the positive reals? In this case the range contains everything in the image set but also contains more (zero is in the range but not the image set). Any insight would be appreciated.
If you are talking about the exam in June 2014 for Algebra 1 and Geometry - the exam is being built by SED the same basic way as the past exams - just following
the CCLS. PARCC exams will not exist by then. What will happen after June 2014 is up for a decision.
I can also suggest that you study the PARCC framework (which is no longer a "draft") more closely than Appendix A. While nothing has been decided officially - SED will most likely pick something more closely aligned to this than the original Appendix A.
Maybe I am missing something, but has it been confirmed that parcc will definitely replace the regents in 2014

Can someone share minutes from the state level meetings during the AMTNYS conference for those that couldn't attend?
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.

Subject: RE: Non-Right Triangle Trig in NY CCSS Geometry
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.
