Geom – Use Pythagorean Theorem to solve word problems – ladders on a building.
Alg II – Find the length of sides of right triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem. Use the Pythagorean and quadratic formula to find area of rectangles.
Trig/PreCalc – Know the basic trig identity cos2x+sin2x=1 and prove that it is equilalent to the Pythagorean Theorem.
Use the Distance Formula to determine the distance between two points.
Alg I – Plot points on a graph and, without measuring, determine the distance between two points.
Geom – Use distance formula to find length of line segments (show Pythagorean theorem to prove)
Alg II – Use distance formula to determine types of triangles – isosceles, equilateral and scalene.
Discuss functions by correctly using appropriate terminology such as domain, range, zeros, and intercepts.
Alg I – Give vocabulary list and quiz for terms involving functions.
Alg II – Using a relation, determine domain and range. Given a function find the zeros and intercepts. Graph line functions given the intercepts

Trig/PreCalc – Write verbal descriptions of functions – from graphs – including zeros, asymptotes, etc.
Identify whether a relation is a function by using the vertical line test as a check for the existence of a unique output for each input.
Alg I – Give sheet with various functions and non-functions. Use pencil to perform vertical line test.
Alg II – Given a relation, use the vertical line test to determine a function.
Trig/PreCalc – Given various relations – determine and recognize functions of different types
Use function notation to evaluate the output of a function for a given input.
Alg I – Create function machine that inputs x and gives out y. Use t-charts to organize work.
Alg II – Given a function, determine the range with a given domain.
