Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.  Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.  
Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically.  CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSA.REI.D.11 Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions  
Understand the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials  Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x  a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x  a) is a factor of p(x). Identify zeros of polynomials when suitable factorizations are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.  
Use polynomial identities to solve problems.  Prove polynomial identities and use them to describe numerical relationships. For example, the polynomial identity (x2 + y2)2 = (x2  y2)2 + (2xy)2 can be used to generate Pythagorean triples.  
Analyze functions using different representations.  CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSF.IF.C.7.C Graph polynomial functions, identifying zeros when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.

Unit Title  Unit 2  Graphs, Functions and Models  Timeframe  5 weeks 
Unit Summary  The concept of a function and function notation are central to modern mathematics and their applications. This unit will develop skills in constructing and interpreting graphs of functions. A “Reallife” situation in which one numerical quantity depends on another is used to better understand the basic concepts of a function. Graphs of many functions will be used to demonstrate characteristics of a function.

Content Statement  Indicator  
Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.  Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f is a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) denotes the output of fcorresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x).  
Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context  For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity  
Analyze functions using different representations.  Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSF.IF.C.7.B Graph square root, cube root, and piecewisedefined functions, including step functions and absolute value functions.  
Build new functions from existing functions.  Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) + k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x + k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology. Include recognizing even and odd functions from their graphs and algebraic expressions for them.  
Rewrite rational expressions.  Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + r(x)/b(x), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
