A.2.c factoring completely first- and second-degree binomials and trinomials in one or two variables. Graphing calculators will be used as a tool for factoring and for confirming algebraic factorizations.
A.4 Graphing calculators will be used both as a primary tool in solving problems and to verify algebraic solutions. The student will solve multistep linear and quadratic equations in two variables, including
A.4.a solving literal equations (formulas) for a given variable;
A.6 The student will graph linear equations and linear inequalities in two variables, including
A.6.a determining the slope of a line when given an equation of the line, the graph of the line, or two points on the line. Slope will be described as rate of change and will be positive, negative, zero, or undefined; and
A.8 The student, given a situation in a real-world context, will analyze a relation to determine whether a direct or inverse variation exists, and represent a direct variation algebraically and graphically and an inverse variation algebraically.
A.11 The student will collect and analyze data, determine the equation of the curve of best fit in order to make predictions, and solve real-world problems, using mathematical models. Mathematical models will include linear and quadratic functions.
