Define appropriate variables to represent real world phenomena
Translate verbal phrases into mathematical expression Identify and combine like terms Evaluate algebraic expressions Simplify expressions using order of operations and algebraic properties multiply polynomials represent functions with function notation, in tables, verbally and graphically organize data in tables create scatter plots define/identify independent and dependent variables describe the relationship between independent and dependent variables make predictions from graphs and tables determine the relationship between sets of data as positive, negative or no correlation describe a real situation that can be interpreted from time-distance graphs choose appropriate scales and viewing windows use recursive routines to generate tables and solve problems |
Use the vertical line test to distinguish between relations and functions
Determine the domain and range of functions Solve real world problems that incorporate limited (i.e. discrete) domain and range Use function notation to illustrate the relationship between two sets of data Identify and interpret x- and y-intercepts of linear functions from equations, tables, graphs and real world data Graph linear functions from “standard form.” Solve problems with y-intercept as the initial value of the function define slope algebraically as a rate of change and geometrically as a ratio calculate slope using graphical analysis or two coordinates solve problems using ratio, rates, and proportions as slope express and graph linear functions in slope-intercept form and point-slope form determine the equation of a line given:
use multiple strategies (algebraic, coordinate geometry) to determine if pairs of lines are parallel, perpendicular or neither. Solve coordinate geometry problems involving parallel and perpendicular lines Solve problems involving parallel and perpendicular lines solve linear function problems using recursive routines Make predictions (extrapolate and interpolate) from data tables and graphs |
Identify direct and inverse variation in the real world
Model direct and inverse variation algebraically Solve direct and inverse variation problems Solve and graph the solution sets of linear inequalities Use inequalities to represent real world phenoma Make predictions from the graphs of linear inequalities Solve systems of linear equations using:
Model and solve “break even” problems Define quadratic functions and equations Solve simple quadratic equations by:
Generate graphs of quadratic functions with tables and regression models. Use technology to model real world data Use technology to solve problems using vertex (max/min) and roots (zeros) of quadratic functions over real numbers |
perform algebraic manipulation using the laws of exponents
use recursive routines to model exponential phenomena use technology to graph exponential functions solve problems from the graphs of exponential functions describe the behavior of the graphs of exponential functions express probability as a ratio and a percent solve probability problems using proportions calculate the likelihood of the occurrence of an event
solve problems using the basic counting principles, permutations, and combinations collect, display, interpret, and draw conclusions from real data (bar graphs, line graphs, circle graphs, histograms) define groups within a statistical population using percents and proportions calculate/find measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode)
use linear regression to model bi-variant data determine and/or defend whether a representation of data is accurate or misleading |
