Study Edge Physics

In Physics, students will conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: laws of motion; changes within physical systems and conservation of energy and momentum; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. Students who successfully complete Physics will acquire factual knowledge within a conceptual framework, practice experimental design and interpretation, work collaboratively with colleagues, and develop critical thinking skills (TAC §112.39(b)(1)).

###
Transformations of Absolute Value Functions

Given an absolute value function, the student will analyze the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(bx), f(x – c), and f(x) + d for specific positive and negative real values.

###
Domain and Range: Numerical Representations

Given a function in the form of a table, mapping diagram, and/or set of ordered pairs, the student will identify the domain and range using set notation, interval notation, or a verbal description as appropriate.

###
Transformations of Square Root and Rational Functions

Given a square root function or a rational function, the student will determine the effect on the graph when f(x) is replaced by af(x), f(x) + d, f(bx), and f(x - c) for specific positive and negative values.

###
Transformations of Exponential and Logarithmic Functions

Given an exponential or logarithmic function, the student will describe the effects of parameter changes.

###
Solving Square Root Equations Using Tables and Graphs

Given a square root equation, the student will solve the equation using tables or graphs - connecting the two methods of solution.

###
Functions and their Inverses

Given a functional relationship in a variety of representations (table, graph, mapping diagram, equation, or verbal form), the student will determine the inverse of the function.

###
Rational Functions: Predicting the Effects of Parameter Changes

Given parameter changes for rational functions, students will be able to predict the resulting changes on important attributes of the function, including domain and range and asymptotic behavior.
