Standard 9: Trigonometry

In grades 9-12, the mathematics curriculum should include the study of trigonometry so that all students can: and so that, in addition, college-intending students can:
  • Understand the connection between trigonometric and circular functions
  • Use circular functions to model periodic real-world phenomena
  • Apply general graphing techniques to trigonometric functions
  • Solve trigonometric equations and verify trigonometric identities
  • Understand the connections between trigonometric functions and polar coordinates, complex numbers, and series
