- HSA-SSE.B.3Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.*
- HSA-SSE.B.4Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems. For example, calculate mortgage payments.★

- HSA-SSE.B.3aFactor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.
- HSA-SSE.B.3bComplete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or minimum value of the function it defines.
- HSA-SSE.B.3cUse the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15^{t} can be rewritten as (1.15^{1/12})^{12t} ≈ 1.012^{12t} to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%.
