Learning Outcomes

Outcome

Apply algebraic, graphical, numerical, and verbal skills to a variety of types of functions: linear, quadratic, polynomial, radical, rational, exponential, and logarithmic functions.

Outcome

Analyze behaviors of functions considering domain and range, transformations of familiar functions, intercepts, symmetry, increasing and decreasing intervals, asymptotes, and relative minimum and maximum function values.

Outcome

Find real and nonreal complex solutions to quadratic and polynomial equations using factoring, the Rational Zero Theorem, synthetic division, the quadratic formula, and other techniques.

Outcome

Use logarithms to solve exponential equations, in the creation of exponential models, and to expand and condense logarithmic expressions.

Outcome

Use the difference quotient or two points on the graph to determine the average rate of change of a function.

Outcome

Solve systems of linear and nonlinear equations.

Outcome

Communicate their knowledge of functions, equations, and inequalities, both orally (e.g. class discussions) and in writing (e.g. written assessments).
