This enhanced course includes a basic understanding of the properties and attributes of functions. Students will understand the use of manipulatives and symbols in order to simplify expressions, and solve equations and inequalities in problem situations. They 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. In addition, an independent study, such as practical or mathematical investigations, extended analysis of problem situations, or statistical studies with graphical representations, must be completed. This enhanced course will provide a more in-depth coverage of concepts. Graphing calculator technology will be integrated throughout the course.
