- 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.

- HSF-IF.C.7aGraph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.
- HSF-IF.C.7bGraph square root, cube root, and piecewise-defined functions, including step functions and absolute value functions.
- HSF-IF.C.7cGraph polynomial functions, identifying zeros when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.
- HSF-IF.C.7d(+) Graph rational functions, identifying zeros and asymptotes when suitable factorizations are available, and showing end behavior.
- HSF-IF.C.7eGraph exponential and logarithmic functions, showing intercepts and end behavior, and trigonometric functions, showing period, midline, and amplitude.
