## Unit 4 - Day 12

##### All Units
###### Writing a Precalculus Assessment
• Include questions in multiple representations (graphical, analytical, tabular, verbal)

• Write questions that reflect learning targets and require conceptual understanding

• Include multiple choice and short answer or free response questions

• Determine scoring rubric before administering the assessment (see below)

• Offer opportunities to practice with and without calculators throughout the year

###### Questions to Include
• Identifying amplitude, period, domain, and range from an equation

• Identifying a missing coefficient in an equation given a graph

• Explaining the range of sine, cosine, secant, and cosecant

• Recognizing equivalent equations using reflections and phase shifts

• Identifying vertical asymptotes for secant, cosecant, tangent, and cotangent

• Selecting an equation with the largest or smallest period (include sine, cosine, and tangent equations in the answer choices)

• Given a value of sine or cosine that is not on the unit circle, have students find the sine or cosine of the negative angle, using the idea of even and odd functions.
