This course begins with the study of non-linear equations, solving formulas for a given variable. Simplification of non-linear expressions is practiced with the laws of exponents, simplifying algebraic, rational, and radical expressions. Relations and families of functions are applied to the coordinate plane and real world situations. Data analysis is structured from drawn and predicted regression models.
This course introduces quadratic equations, factoring, and complex numbers. Applications of functions include polynomials, minimum and maximum values, exponential growth and decay, exponential and logarithmic functions, and changes in variables. Patterns and sequences are also studied. Probability topics include permutations, combinations, and odds, independent, dependent, and compound events. A prerequisite credit in Algebra 1 and Geometry is required.
