 In this topic, students first distinguish between discrete and continuous random variables and then focus on probability distributions for discrete random variables. In the early lessons of this...

 In this topic, students extend their understanding of probability, building on work from Grade 11. The multiplication rule for independent events introduced in Grade 11 is generalized to a rule that...

 Student Outcomes Students apply the law of sines or the law of cosines to determine missing measurements in realworld situations that can be modeled using nonright triangles, including situations...

 Student Outcomes Students prove the law of cosines and use it to solve problems.

 Student Outcomes Students prove the law of sines and use it to solve problems.

 Student Outcomes Students prove the formula Area = 1/2 bc sin(A) for a triangle. They reason geometrically and numerically to find the areas of various triangles.

 Students derive sophisticated applications of the trigonometric functions in Topic B including: the area formula for a general triangle, the law of sines, the law of cosines, and Heron’s formula. ...

 Student Outcomes Students construct a tangent line from a point outside a given circle to the circle.

 Topic A helps students recall how to use special triangles positioned within the unit circle to determine geometrically the values of sine, cosine, and tangent at special angles. The unit circle is...

 Student Outcomes Students will be able to give an informal argument using Cavalieri’s principle for the formula for the volume of a sphere and other solid figures.

 Student Outcomes Students learn to graph equations of the form x2/a2  y2/b2 =1 . Students derive the equations of hyperbolas given the foci, using the fact that the difference of distances from the...

 Student Outcomes Students derive the equations of ellipses given the foci, using the fact that the sum of distances from the foci is constant.

 Student Outcomes Students convert between the real and complex forms of equations for ellipses. Students write equations of ellipses and represent them graphically.

 Topic A brings students back to the study of complex roots of polynomial functions. Students briefly review quadratic and cubic functions and then extend familiar polynomial identities to both...

 Student Outcomes Students determine the area of a cyclic quadrilateral as a function of its side lengths and the acute angle formed by its diagonals. Students prove Ptolemy’s theorem, which states...

 Student Outcomes Students show that a quadrilateral is cyclic if and only if its opposite angles are supplementary. Students derive and apply the area of cyclic quadrilateral ABCD as 1/2 AB·CD·sin(w...

 The module concludes with Topic E focusing on the properties of quadrilaterals inscribed in circles and establishing Ptolemy's theorem. This result codifies the Pythagorean theorem, curious facts...

 Student Outcomes Given a circle, students find the equations of two lines tangent to the circle with specified slopes. Given a circle and a point outside the circle, students find the equation of the...

 Student Outcomes Students complete the square in order to write the equation of a circle in centerradius form. Students recognize when a quadratic in x and y is the equation for a circle.

 Student Outcomes Students write the equation for a circle in centerradius form, (x  a)2 (y  b)2 = r2 using the Pythagorean theorem or the distance formula. Students write the equation of a circle...

 Topic D brings in coordinate geometry to establish the equation of a circle. Students solve problems to find the equations of specific tangent lines or the coordinates of specific points of contact...

 Student Outcomes Students find “missing lengths” in circlesecant or circlesecanttangent diagrams.

 Student Outcomes Students find the measures of angle/arcs and chords in figures that include two secant lines meeting outside a circle, where the measures must be inferred from other data.

 Student Outcomes Students understand that an angle whose vertex lies in the interior of a circle intersects the circle in two points and that the edges of the angles are contained within two secant...
