MA.9-12.A.1: Mathematics

The student will represent verbal quantitative situations algebraically and evaluate these expressions for given replacement values of the variables.

MA.9-12.A.2.a: Mathematics

applying the laws of exponents to perform operations on expressions;

MA.9-12.A.2.b: Mathematics

adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing polynomials; and

MA.9-12.A.2.c: Mathematics

factoring completely first- and second-degree binomials and trinomials in one or two variables. Graphing calculators will be used as a tool for factoring and for confirming algebraic factorizations.

MA.9-12.A.4.a: Mathematics

solving literal equations (formulas) for a given variable;

MA.9-12.A.4.b: Mathematics

justifying steps used in simplifying expressions and solving equations, using field properties and axioms of equality that are valid for the set of real numbers and its subsets;

MA.9-12.A.4.c: Mathematics

solving quadratic equations algebraically and graphically;

MA.9-12.A.4.d: Mathematics

solving multistep linear equations algebraically and graphically;

MA.9-12.A.4.e: Mathematics

solving systems of two linear equations in two variables algebraically and graphically; and

MA.9-12.A.4.f: Mathematics

solving real-world problems involving equations and systems of equations.

MA.9-12.A.5.a: Mathematics

solving multistep linear inequalities algebraically and graphically;

MA.9-12.A.5.b: Mathematics

justifying steps used in solving inequalities, using axioms of inequality and properties of order that are valid for the set of real numbers and its subsets;

MA.9-12.A.5.c: Mathematics

solving real-world problems involving inequalities; and

MA.9-12.A.5.d: Mathematics

solving systems of inequalities.

MA.9-12.A.6.a: Mathematics

determining the slope of a line when given an equation of the line, the graph of the line, or two points on the line. Slope will be described as rate of change and will be positive, negative, zero, or undefined; and

MA.9-12.A.6.b: Mathematics

writing the equation of a line when given the graph of the line, two points on the line, or the slope and a point on the line.

MA.9-12.A.7.a: Mathematics

determining whether a relation is a function;

MA.9-12.A.7.b: Mathematics

domain and range;

MA.9-12.A.7.c: Mathematics

zeros of a function;

MA.9-12.A.7.d: Mathematics

x- and y-intercepts;

MA.9-12.A.7.e: Mathematics

finding the values of a function for elements in its domain; and

MA.9-12.A.7.f: Mathematics

making connections between and among multiple representations of functions including concrete, verbal, numeric, graphic, and algebraic.

MA.9-12.A.8: Mathematics

The student, given a situation in a real-world context, will analyze a relation to determine whether a direct or inverse variation exists, and represent a direct variation algebraically and graphically and an inverse variation algebraically.

MA.9-12.A.9: Mathematics

The student, given a set of data, will interpret variation in real-world contexts and calculate and interpret mean absolute deviation, standard deviation, and z-scores.

MA.9-12.A.10: Mathematics

The student will compare and contrast multiple univariate data sets, using box-and-whisker plots.

MA.9-12.A.11: Mathematics

The student will collect and analyze data, determine the equation of the curve of best fit in order to make predictions, and solve real-world problems, using mathematical models. Mathematical models will include linear and quadratic functions.
