Secondary Mathematics II

Strand: FUNCTIONS - Building Functions (F.BF)

Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities (Standard F.BF.1). Build new functions from existing functions (Standard F.BF.3).

Standard F.BF.3

Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) + k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x + k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs. Experiment with cases and illustrate an explanation of the effects on the graph using technology. Include recognizing even and odd functions from their graphs and algebraic expressions for them.

• FUNCTIONS - Building Functions (F.BF) - 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 - Building Functions (F.BF).
• Generalizing Patterns: Table Tiles
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to identify linear and quadratic relationships in a realistic context: the number of tiles of different types that are needed for a range of square tabletops.
• Identifying Quadratic Functions (Standard Form)
This task has students explore the relationship between the three parameters a, b, and c in the equation f(x)=ax2+bx+c and the resulting graph. There are many possible approaches to solving each part of this problem, especially the first part.
• 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.
• Medical Testing
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to make sense of a real life situation and decide what math to apply to the problem, understand and calculate the conditional probability of an event A, given an event B, and interpret the answer in terms of a model, and represent events as a subset of a sample space using tables, tree diagrams, and Venn diagrams.
• Module 1: Quadratic Functions - Student Edition (Math 2)
The Mathematics Vision Project, Secondary Math Two Module 1, Quadratic Functions, picks up where students left off with linear and exponential functions, using the same types of diagrams and representations to introduce quadratic functions. The entire module focuses on the features of quadratic functions, comparing quadratics to other functions, and representing quadratic functions.
• 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 2: Structures of Expressions - Teacher 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.
• Representing Conditional Probabilities 2
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students understand conditional probability.
• Representing Trigonometric Functions - Ferris Wheel
This lesson unit is intended to help educators assess how well students are able to model a periodic situation, the height of a person on a Ferris wheel, using trigonometric functions, and interpret the constants a, b, c in the formula h = a + b cos ct in terms of the physical situation, where h is the height of the person above the ground and t is the elapsed time.
