Prerequisite: Core Connections Algebra 1 and Core Connections Geometry
Expanding upon the concepts of Algebra 1, students will explore functions (linear, quadratic, and other polynomials; exponential, logarithmic) and their graphs, sequences, exponential growth and decay models, transformations of functions and their graphs, non-linear systems in two or more variables, matrices, inverse functions, and logarithms. Students will conduct hands-on experiments that will allow them to gather data and create mathematical models. All topics will be explored with and without the aid of technology. This course is a prerequisite for students, who will be taking the SL Mathematics course.
