  5. Alg1.M.F.IF.A.01: Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range.

  6. Alg1.M.F.IF.B.05: Relate the domain of a function to its graph and, where applicable, to the quantitative relationship it describes.

(Month 2, 7, & 9)
  7. Alg1.M.F.IF.A.02: Use function notations, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context. (Month 2, 7, & 9)

  9. Alg1.M.F.IF.C.07: Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.  a. Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima. (Month 2 & 8)

  17. Alg1.M.A.REI.C.05: Prove that, given a system of two equations in two variables, replacing one equation by the sum of that equation and a multiple of the other produces a system with the same solutions. (Month 4)
  18. Alg1.M.REI.D.11: Explain why the x‐coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions. (Month 4)
  19. Alg1.M.A.REI.D.10: Understand that the graph of an equation in two variables is the set of all its solutions plotted in the coordinate plane, often forming a curve (which could be a line). (Month 4)
  20. Alg1.M.A.SSE.A.02: Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x4 – y4 as (x2)2 – (y2)2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x2 – y2)(x2 + y2). (Month 5 and 7)
  21. Alg1.M.A.CED.A.04: Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. For example, rearrange Ohm’s law V = IR to highlight resistance R. (Month 5 & 7)
