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.
Domain and Range: Verbal Description
The student will be able to identify and determine reasonable values for the domain and range from any given verbal description.
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.
Solving Systems of Equations Using Substitution
Given a system of two equations where at least one of the equations is linear, the student will solve the system using the algebraic method of substitution.
Solving Systems of Equations Using Elimination
Given a system of two equations where at least one of the equations is linear, the student will solve the system using the algebraic method of elimination.
Solving Systems of Equations with Three Variables
Given a system of three linear equations, the student will solve the system with a unique solution.
Solving Systems of Equations Using Matrices
Given a system of up to three linear equations, the student will solve the system using matrices with technology.
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.
Absolute Value Inequalities
This activity provides an opportunity for students to examine how to find solutions to an absolute value inequality.
Formulating and Solving Square Root Equations

TEA AP^{®} Physics 1: AlgebraBased
AP^{®} Physics is the result of an effort to better serve teachers and students. The textbook focuses on the College Board’s AP^{®} framework concepts and practices.
The AP^{®} Physics curriculum framework outlines the two fullyear physics courses AP^{®} Physics 1: AlgebraBased and AP^{®} Physics 2: AlgebraBased. These two courses focus on the big ideas typically included in the first and second semesters of an algebrabased, introductory collegelevel physics course. They provide students with the essential knowledge and skills required to support future advanced coursework in physics. The AP^{®} Physics 1 curriculum includes mechanics, mechanical waves, sound, and electrostatics. The AP^{®} Physics 2 curriculum focuses on thermodynamics, fluid statics, dynamics, electromagnetism, geometric and physical optics, quantum physics, atomic physics, and nuclear physics. AP^{®} Science Practices emphasize inquirybased learning and development of critical thinking and reasoning skills. Inquirybased learning involves exploratory learning as a way to gain new knowledge. Students begin by making an observation regarding a given physics topic. Students then explore that topic using scientific methodology, as opposed to simply being told about it in lecture. In this way, students learn the content through selfdiscovery rather than memorization.
The AP^{®} framework has identified seven major science practices, which are described using short phrases that include using representations and models to communicate information and solve problems, using mathematics appropriately, engaging in questioning, planning and implementing data collection strategies, analyzing and evaluating data, justifying scientific explanations, and connecting concepts. The AP^{®} framework’s Learning Objectives merge content with one or more of the seven science practices that students should develop as they prepare for the AP^{®} Physics exam. Each chapter of AP^{®} Physics begins with a “Connection for AP^{®} Courses” that explains how the content in the chapter sections align to the Big Ideas, Enduring Understandings, Essential Knowledge, and Learning Objectives of the AP^{®} framework. These sections help students quickly and easily locate where components of the AP^{®} framework are covered in the book, as well as clearly indicate material that, although interesting, exceeds the scope of the AP^{®} framework. Content requirements for AP^{®} Physics are prescribed in the College Board Publication Advanced Placement Course Description: Physics, published by The College Board (http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter112/ch112d.html#112.64) and (http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter112/ch112d.html#112.65).

Square Root Regression
This lesson is a student discovery lesson that culminates in square root regression with technology. Students will use their study of inverses, the relationship between quadratic and square root functions, their previous knowledge of regression, and determine how to find the square root regression of realworld data.
Functions and their Inverses
Given a functional relationship in a variety of representations (table, graph, mapping diagram, equation, or verbal form), the student will determine the inverse of the function.
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.
