- HSA-CED.A.1Create 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.
- HSA-CED.A.2Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.
- HSA-CED.A.3Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods.
- HSA-CED.A.4Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohmâs law V = IR to highlight resistance R.

HSA-CED.A.3

Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods.

What is Algebra?

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Modeling with Algebra

Big Idea:Algebra is built on axioms and definitions and relies on proofs just as much as geometry.

Review of Polynomial Roots and Complex Numbers

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

Polynomial Theorems and Graphs

Big Idea:Arithmetic with polynomials and complex numbers are performed in similar ways, but powers of i have a meaning distinct from powers of variables.

Solving Two Variable Inequalities

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Extending Equations

Big Idea:See how to use test points to determine how to determine the solution to a two-variable inequality.

The Groupon Question: Solving Two Variable Equations

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Extending Equations

Big Idea:An equation in two variables can have many solutions which are represented as ordered pairs in the coordinate plane.

More Linear Programming

12th Grade Math

Â» Unit:
