The new

New York State

Mathematics Learning Standards

Is it really what it sounds like? Trigonometry

- Three proposed Regents Examinations
- Integrated Algebra
- Integrated Geometry
- Integrated Algebra 2 and Trigonometry

NYS Regents program Trigonometry over the years

The new proposed NYS Regents program in Mathematics Trigonometry

- Reverts to a more traditional sequence of high school mathematics courses
- Includes the real-world connections and the constructed response format of questions found in Math A and Math B
- Three Regents examinations
- Graphing calculators needed
- Includes probability, and statistics as in the Sequential Math program and Math A and Math B as well as some of the logic
- More in-sinc with other parts of the country
- Based on NCTM Standards

The current Regents program Trigonometry

Math A – June of 9th grade (grade 8 for accelerated students)

Math B – June of 11th grade (grade 10 for accelerated students)

The new Regents program

Integrated Algebra – June of 9th grade (or grade 8)

Geometry – June of 10th grade (or grade 9)

Integrated Algebra and Trigonometry – June of 11th grade (or grade 10)

When will students take the Mathematics Regents Examination(s)?Normal Approximation Trigonometry

- In a binomial distribution of n trials, the mean = np and the standard deviation = or. Let r represent the number of successes in n trials. Since the data in a binomial distribution is discrete rather than continuous, then to estimate the probability of at least r successes in n trials, it is necessary to subtract 0.5
- from r .

New topics Trigonometry

- The two major new topics are:
- Normal Approximation to a Binomial Distribution
- Sequences and Series
Check out the handout taken from the NYSED Crosswalk for Algebra Two/Trigonometry

Normal Approximation for a Binomial Probability Trigonometry Math Facts

Example 1 Trigonometry

A manufacturer of light bulbs knows that the probability that a light bulb produced by his company being defective is 0.01. Out of 30 light bulbs sold to one of his customers, use a normal distribution to approximate the probability that no more than 3 are defective?

manual solution Trigonometry

Solution to Example 1 Trigonometry

- In this binomial distribution the mean = and the standard deviation = . . The graphing calculator can be used to determine this result using a low value of 0.5 lower than the least possible number 0 or –0.5 and 3.5 as the highest number, mean = 0.3 and standard deviation of 0.545, press
- 2nd VARS 2 –0.5 , 2.5 , 0.3 , 0.545 ) ENTER
.

Example 2 Trigonometry

Anytime Gary plays James in a game of chess, he has a 70% probability of winning the game. If they play 10 chess games, use a normal distribution to approximate the probability that Gary wins at least 8 games.

Solution to Example 2 Trigonometry

- In this binomial distribution the mean = 10(.7) = 7 and the standard deviation = . .

Using the calculator the answer is revealed as: Trigonometry
