Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

As the Wheel Turns  In this task, students use trigonometric functions to model the movement of a point around a wheel and, through space. Students also interpret features of graphs in terms of the given realworld context. 
Foxes and Rabbits 2  This problem solving task challenges students to trigonometric functions to model the populations of rabbits and foxes over time, and then graph the functions. 
Foxes and Rabbits 3  This problem solving task challenges students to use trigonometric functions to model the number of rabbits and foxes as a function of time.

Calculating the EarthSun distance using Satellite Observations of a Venus Transit  Every school child learns that the earthsun distance is 93 million miles. Yet, determining this distance was a formidable challenge to the best scientists and mathematicians of the 18th and 19th centuries. The purpose of this lesson is to use the 2012 Transit of Venus as an opportunity to work through the mathematics to calculate the earthsun distance. The only tools needed are basic knowledge of geometry, algebra, and trigonometry. The lesson is selfcontained in that it includes all the data needed to work through the exercise. 
City Temperatures and the Cosine Curve  Students will work with temperature data from San Antonio, Texas and Buenos Aires, Argentina. They will view the periodicity of the city temperatures and build cosine functions to fit the data. The function equation results are then used to find temperatures for a given day, or certain days for a given temperature. 
Ferris Wheel  This lesson is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:

Sine Curves and Biorhythms  This is an activity in which students find their personal biorhythms using sine functions. Biorhythms are 3 cycles (physical, emotional, and intellectual) thought to affect our behavior and performance. The biorhythms have 3 different period lengths. Students need to compute the number of days they have lived to find where they are in these cycles. Students find the equations of the functions and then graph on a graphing calculator. 
Tune In and Sine  This lesson is intended to show students how to use the equations and graphs of sine and cosine to model realworld applications particularly using amplitude, period, and midline.

Function Flyer  In this online tool, students input a function to create a graph where the constants, coefficients, and exponents can be adjusted by slider bars. This tool allows students to explore graphs of functions and how adjusting the numbers in the function affect the graph. Using tabs at the top of the page you can also access supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.
