SSE.A.1b Interpret multi-part expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, view P(1+r)n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P and interpret the parts.
HSA.SSE.A.2 Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 - y4 as (x²)² - (y²)², allowing for it to be recognized as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x² - y²)(x² + y²).
9-12.AR.A.2 Write expressions in equivalent forms to reveal information and to solve problems.
HSA.SSE.B.4 Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems. For example, Watermilfoil in one Maine lake triples in the number of plants each week during the summer when boat propellers are not cleared when exiting the lake. If the lake has 20 plants at the beginning of the season, how many plants will exist at the end of the 12-week summer season? What is the general formula for Watermilfoil growth for this lake?
HSA.APR.A.1b Factor and/or expand polynomial expressions, identify and combine like terms, and apply the Distributive Property.
9-12.AR.A.4 Understand the relationship between zeros and factors of polynomials.
HSA.APR.B.2 Know and apply the Remainder Theorem: For a polynomial p(x) and a number a, the remainder on division by x - a is p(a), so p(a) = 0 if and only if (x - a) is a factor of p(x). For example, consider the polynomial function P(x) = x4 – 2x³ + ax² + 8x + 12, where a is an unknown real number. If (x-3) is a factor of this polynomial, what is the value of a?
HSA.APR.B.3 Identify zeros of polynomials of degree three or higher when suitable factorizations (in factored form or easily factorable) are available, and use the zeros to construct a rough graph of the function defined by the polynomial.
9-12.AR.A.5 Use polynomial identities to solve problems.
HSA.APR.C.4 Prove polynomial identities and use them to describe numerical relationships. For example, the polynomial identity (x² + y²)² = (x² – y²)² + (2xy)² can be used to generate Pythagorean triples.
HSA.APR.C.5 Know and apply the Binomial Theorem for the expansion of (x + y)n in powers of x and y for a positive integer n, where x and y are any numbers, with coefficients determined for example by Pascal's Triangle. The Binomial Theorem can be proved by mathematical induction or by a combinatorial argument.
HSA.APR.D.6 Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + r(x)/b(x), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
HSA.APR.D.7 Understand that rational expressions form a system analogous to the rational numbers, closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division by a nonzero rational expression; add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions.
9-12.AR.A.7 Create equations and/or inequalities that describe numbers or relationships.
HSA.CED.A.1 Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
HSA.CED.A.3 Represent constraints by equations or inequalities, and by systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context. For example, represent inequalities describing nutritional and cost constraints on combinations of different foods such as lobsters, blueberries, and potatoes.
9-12.AR.A.11 Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically.
HSA.REI.D.11 Explain why the x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
9-12.AR.A.13 Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.
HSF.IF.B.4 For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features may include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative and absolute maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.
HSF.IF.B.5 Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes. For example, if the function h(n) gives the number of person-hours it takes to assemble n engines in a factory, then the positive integers would be an appropriate domain for the function.
HSF.IF.C.8 Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function.
HSF.IF.C.8a Use the process of factoring and completing the square in a quadratic function to show zeros, maximum and minimum values, and symmetry of the graph, and interpret these in terms of a context.
HSF.IF.C.8b Use the properties of exponents to interpret expressions for exponential functions. For example, apply the properties to financial situations such as identifying appreciation and depreciation rate for the value of a house or car sometime after its initial purchase: Vn = P(1 + r)n.
HSF.IF.C.9 Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a graph of one quadratic function and an algebraic expression for another, say which has the larger maximum.

9-12.AR.A.15 Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities.
HSF.BF.A.1 Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
HSF.BF.A.1b Combine standard function types using arithmetic operations. For example, build a function that models the temperature of a cooling body by adding a constant function to a decaying exponential, and relate these functions to the model.
9-12.AR.A.16 Build new functions from existing functions.
HSF.BF.B.3 Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) + k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x + k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate 20 an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology. Include recognizing even and odd functions from their graphs and algebraic expressions for them.
HSF.BF.B.4a Solve an equation of the form f(x) = c (where c represents the output value of the function) for a simple function f that has an inverse and write an expression for the inverse. For example, if f(x) =2 x³, then solving f(x) = c leads to x = (c/2)1/3, which is the general formula for finding an input from a specific output, c, for this function.
HSF.TF.A.2 Explain how the unit circle in the coordinate plane enables the extension of trigonometric functions to all real numbers, interpreted as radian measures of angles traversed counterclockwise around the unit circle.

9-12.SR.A.1 Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.
HSS.ID.A.4 Use the mean and standard deviation of a data set to fit it to a normal distribution and to estimate population percentages. Recognize that there are data sets for which such a procedure is not appropriate. Use calculators, spreadsheets, and tables to estimate areas under the normal curve.
HSS.IC.A.2 Decide if a specified model is consistent with results from a given data-generating process, e.g., using simulation. For example, a model says a spinning coin falls heads up with probability 0.5. Would a result of 5 tails in a row cause you to question the model?
