- HSF-IF.C.7Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.*
- HSF-IF.C.8Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function.
- HSF-IF.C.9Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a graph of one quadratic function and an algebraic expression for another, say which has the larger maximum.

Patio Problem: Sequences and Functions

Algebra I

Â» Unit:

Linear Functions

Big Idea:Arithmetic sequences can be modeled by linear functions that both have the same common difference.

Quadratic Functions: Standard and Intercept Forms

Algebra II

Â» Unit:

HSF-IF.C.8a

Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, extreme values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.

HSF-IF.C.8b

Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, identify percent rate of change in functions such as y = (1.02)t, y = (0.97)t, y = (1.01)12t, y = (1.2)t/10, and classify them as representing exponential growth or decay.
