Anatomy 10/7Students will understand the derivatives of the skin. Skins will understand the functions of the skin.(Under 3 ratings)
Continuity and End Behavior(2) Functions. The student uses process standards in mathematics to explore, describe, and analyze the attributes of functions. The student makes connections between multiple representations of functions and algebraically constructs new functions. The student analyzes and uses functions to model real-world problems. The student is expected to: (L) determine various types of discontinuities in the interval (-∞, ∞) as they relate to functions and explore the limitations of the graphing calculator as it relates to the behavior of the function around discontinuities; (M) describe the left-sided behavior and the right-sided behavior of the graph of a function around discontinuities; SWBAT: classify discontinuities and describe end behaviors of functions(Under 3 ratings)
Function Symmetry(2) Functions. The student uses process standards in mathematics to explore, describe, and analyze the attributes of functions. The student makes connections between multiple representations of functions and algebraically constructs new functions. The student analyzes and uses functions to model real-world problems. The student is expected to: (D) describe symmetry of graphs of even and odd functions; SWBAT: describe a function as even, odd, or neither and confirm symmetry algebraically(Under 3 ratings)
Graphing Functions(2) Functions. The student uses process standards in mathematics to explore, describe, and analyze the attributes of functions. The student makes connections between multiple representations of functions and algebraically constructs new functions. The student analyzes and uses functions to model real-world problems.
