increasing/decreasing value) in graphing polynomial, rational,
algebraic, exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions.
5. Solve algebraic and trigonometric equations graphically and
6. Graph circles, functions, parametric representations, and polar
functions using polar coordinates.
7. Apply trigonometric functions and identities to solve problems
in mathematics and science.
8. Solve right and oblique triangles using the trigonometric
functions and the laws of sines and cosines.
