Generalizing Geometric Properties of Ratios in Similar Figures
Students will investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships and apply the definition of similarity, in terms of a dilation, to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and congruent corresponding angles.
Making Conjectures About Circles and Angles
Given examples of circles and the lines that intersect them, the student will use explorations and concrete models to formulate and test conjectures about the properties of and relationships among the resulting angles.
Solving Problems With Similar Figures
Given problem situations involving similar figures, the student will use ratios to solve the problems.
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.
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.
Writing Equations to Describe Functional Relationships (Table → Equation)
Given a problem situation represented in verbal or symbolic form, the student will identify functions.
Writing Verbal Descriptions of Functional Relationships
Given a problem situation containing a functional relationship, the student will verbally describe the functional relationship that exists.
Writing Inequalities to Describe Relationships (Graph → Symbolic)
Given the graph of an inequality, students will write the symbolic representation of the inequality.
Writing Inequalities to Describe Relationships (Symbolic → Graph)
Describe functional relationships for given problem situations, and write equations or inequalities to answer questions arising from the situations.
Connecting Multiple Representations of Functions
The student will consider multiple representations of linear functions, including tables, mapping diagrams, graphs, and verbal descriptions.
Writing the Symbolic Representation of a Function (Graph → Symbolic)
Given the graph of a linear or quadratic function, the student will write the symbolic representation of the function.
Determining Parent Functions (Verbal/Graph)
Given a graph or verbal description of a function, the student will determine the parent function.
Determining Reasonable Domains and Ranges (Verbal/Graph)
Given a graph and/or verbal description of a situation (both continuous and discrete), the student will identify mathematical domains and ranges and determine reasonable domain and range values for the given situations.
Interpreting Graphs
Given a graph, the student will analyze, interpret, and communcate the mathematical relationship represented and its characteristics.
Interpreting Scatterplots
Given scatterplots that represent problem situations, the student will determine if the data has strong vs weak correlation as well as positive, negative, or no correlation.
Making Predictions and Critical Judgments (Table/Verbal)
Given verbal descriptions and tables that represent problem situations, the student will make predictions for realworld problems.
