Secondary Mathematics II

Strand: FUNCTIONS - Interpret Functions (F.IF)

Interpret quadratic functions that arise in applications in terms of a context (Standards F.IF.4–6). Analyze functions using different representations (Standards F.IF.7–9).

Standard F.IF.7

Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.

This collection of resources to teach graphing equations in slope intercept form includes warm-up exercises, a video presentation explaining the topic, practice exercises, worked examples, practice problems, and a review.
• Applications of Quadratic Functions video
This video introduces and explains the topic.
• FUNCTIONS - Interpret Functions (F.IF) - Sec Math II Core Guide
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and educators around the state of Utah developed these guides for the Secondary Mathematics II - Interpret Functions (F.IF).
• Functions and Everyday Situations
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to articulate verbally the relationships between variables arising in everyday contexts, translate between everyday situations and sketch graphs of relationships between variables, and interpret algebraic functions in terms of the contexts in which they arise. Students will also reflect on the domains of everyday functions and in particular whether they should be discrete or continuous.
• GeoGebra
GeoGebra is dynamic online geometry software. Constructions can be made with points, vectors, segments, lines, polygons, conic sections, inequalities, implicit polynomials and functions. All of them can be changed dynamically afterwards.

• Introduction to the Materials (Math 2)
Introduction to the Materials in the Mathematics Two of the The MVP classroom experience begins by confronting students with an engaging task and then invites them to grapple with solving it. As students ideas emerge, take form, and are shared, the teacher orchestrates the student discussions and explorations towards a focused mathematical goal. As conjectures are made and explored, they evolve into mathematical concepts that the community of learners begins to embrace as effective strategies for analyzing and solving problems.
• Module 2: Structures of Expressions - Student Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 2, Structures of Expressions is both a functions module and an algebra module. It is designed to extend students knowledge of quadratic functions and to reinforce two big ideas of functions, Functions can be transformed in the same, predictable way and Different algebraic forms have purpose in different situations.

• Module 4: More Functions, More Features - Student Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 4, More Functions, More Features, shifts focus to consider piecewise functions, absolute value functions, and inverse functions. Understanding of piecewise functions is built from students understanding of graphs and the stories that they can tell. Students learn to write functions for contexts in which rates change, making a piecewise function.
