Algebra 1B

Goals

8. Sequences and Functions

  • I will be able determine arithmetic and geometric sequences

 

9. Descriptive Statistics

  • I will be able to use the two basic methods of descriptive statistics — graphical and numeric, using a variety of tables, graphs, and plots to visualize what the data is showing
  • I will be able to summarize these patterns by computing statistics that describe the distribution, central tendency, and spread of the data
  • I will be able to determine relationships between data sets

 

10. Polynomials

  • I will be able to make connections between polynomials, their graphs, and the real-world relationships

 

11. Factoring of Polynomials

  • I will be able to find out more about a function’s graph by factoring
  • I will use factoring to form representations that make it easier to tell where a function’s roots (x-intercepts) are
  • If the function happens to describe a real-world relationship, I will be able to determine the meaning of the x-intercepts quickly using factoring

 

12. Quadratic Equations and Functions

  • I will be able to model the path of any object that is thrown or launched into the air using quadratic equations
  • I will be able to identify key locations on graphs of quadratic functions

 

13. Undoing Functions and Moving Them Around

  • I will be able to determine the “big picture description or rule” of a function, and manipulate it in some way to solve for a given application
  • I will be able to find the inverse of a given function, and manipulate the graph directly using transformations, such as shifting it on an xy-plane or stretching it
