The students will be given points for all assignments, but grades will be weighted with the following percentages:
Students will gain a basic understanding of the properties and attributes of functions. This will be accomplished through the use of manipulatives and symbols in order to simplify expressions, solve equations, and inequalities in problem situations. Students will translate among the various representations of functions and gain an understanding of slope and intercepts of linear functions (including the effects of change in parameters) in real-world and mathematical situations. Numerous hands-on experiences will be provided throughout the course.
