A student should be able:
1. Graph lines and inequalities using the rectangular coordinate
system and write equations of lines.
2. Find the exact or calculator values of the six trigonometric
functions for any angle for which values exist when the angle
is expressed in degrees or radians or when it is drawn in
3. Use trigonometric functions, similar triangles, the Law of
Sines and the Law of Cosines to solve application problems.
4. Solve application problems involving arc length, area of
sectors, radian measure, linear velocity and angular velocity.
5. Graph variations of the six trigonometric functions with
different amplitudes, periods, phase shifts and/or vertical
6. Verify complex identities using the reciprocal, Pythagorean
Theorem, sum and difference, double angle and half-angle
7. Use trigonometric identities to find solution sets of
8. Find the vertex of a parabola, sketch the graph and identify
the domain its domain and range when given a quadratic
9. Solve nonlinear systems of equations and graph nonlinear
1. Examine and interpret the graphs of basic trigonometric
functions, vectors, and polar plots, and their transformations.
2. Apply standard trigonometric identities to simplify
expressions and to solve trigonometric expressions and to
solve trigonometric equations and applications.
3. Determine the exact value and approximation of basic
trigonometric equations and applications.
4. Rewrite complex numbers in polar form and apply arithmetic
operations using both polar and standard forms of complex
