A2.4.3 Use the techniques of translations and rotation of axis in the coordinate plane to graph conic sections;
A2.5 Students analyze relations, functions and their graphs.
A2.5.1 Determine whether a relationship is a function and identify independent and dependent variables, the domain, range, roots, asymptotes and any points of discontinuity of functions. (use paper and pencil methods and/or graphing calculators where appropriate);
A2.5.2 Graph and describe the basic shape of the graphs and analyze the general form of the equations for the following families of functions: linear, quadratic, exponential, piece-wise, and absolute value (use technology when appropriate.);
A2.5.3 Describe the translations and scale changes of a given function (x) resulting from parameter substitutions and describe the effect of such changes on linear, quadratic, and exponential functions;
A2.5.7 Determine the type of function that best fits the context of a basic application (e.g., linear to solve distance/time problems, quadratic to explain the motion of a falling object, exponential to model bacteria growth, piece-wise to model postage rates, or absolute value functions to represent distance from the mean);
