## Course Detail

This course introduces basic features of the function by extending students’ experiences with quadratic relations. It focuses on quadratic, trigonometric, and exponential functions and their use in modelling real-world situations. Students will represent functions numerically, graphically, and algebraically; simplify expressions; solve equations; and solve problems relating to applications. Students will reason mathematically and communicate their thinking as they solve multi-step problems.

## A. CHARACTERISTICS OF FUNCTIONS

OVERALL EXPECTATIONS
By the end of this course, students will:

1. demonstrate an understanding of functions, their representations, and their inverses, and make connections between the algebraic and graphical representations of functions using transformations;
2. determine the zeros and the maximum or minimum of a quadratic function, and solve problems involving quadratic functions, including problems arising from real-world applications;
3. demonstrate an understanding of equivalence as it relates to simplifying polynomial, radical, and rational expressions.

## B. EXPONENTIAL FUNCTIONS

OVERALL EXPECTATIONS
By the end of this course, students will:

1. evaluate powers with rational exponents, simplify expressions containing exponents, and describe properties of exponential functions represented in a variety of ways;
2. make connections between the numeric, graphical, and algebraic representations of exponential functions;
3. identify and represent exponential functions, and solve problems involving exponential functions, including problems arising from real-world applications.

## C. DISCRETE FUNCTIONS

OVERALL EXPECTATIONS
By the end of this course, students will:

1. demonstrate an understanding of recursive sequences, represent recursive sequences in a variety of ways, and make connections to Pascal’s triangle;
2. demonstrate an understanding of the relationships involved in arithmetic and geometric sequences and series, and solve related problems;
3. make connections between sequences, series, and financial applications, and solve problems involving compound interest and ordinary annuities.

## D. TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS

OVERALL EXPECTATIONS
By the end of this course, students will:

1. determine the values of the trigonometric ratios for angles less than 360º; prove simple trigonometric identities; and solve problems using the primary trigonometric ratios, the sine law, and the cosine law;
2. demonstrate an understanding of periodic relationships and sinusoidal functions, and make connections between the numeric, graphical, and algebraic representations of sinusoidal functions;
3. identify and represent sinusoidal functions, and solve problems involving sinusoidal functions, including problems arising from real-world applications.
