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: Graphs

Given a function in graph form, identify the domain and range using set notation, interval notation, or a verbal description as appropriate.

###
Domain and Range: Function Notation

Given a function in function notation form, identify the domain and range using set notation, interval notation, or a verbal description as appropriate.

###
Domain and Range: Verbal Description

###
Domain and Range: Contextual Situations

The student will be able to identify and determine reasonable values for the domain and range from any given contextual situation.

###
Modeling Data with Linear Functions

Given a scatterplot where a linear function is the best fit, the student will interpret the slope and intercepts, determine an equation using two data points, identify the conditions under which the function is valid, and use the linear model to predict data points.

###
Formulating Systems of Inequalities

Given a contextual situation, the student will formulate a system of two linear inequalities with two unknowns to model the situation.
