This course is organized around the study of families of functions. Emphasis is placed on linear, quadratic and exponential functions, as well as translating these functions between graphs, tables, symbolic representations and real-life context. Students will solve equations; use trigonometric ratios; describe, analyze and evaluate data in various contexts; and use counting principles to calculate probabilities. Students will apply these concepts using a variety of technologies and apply this learning to solve real-world mathematical problems. This course prepares students for future math courses, the high school MN Math Standards, and MN standardized math tests.
