A1.A.SSE.A.1 Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.

A1.A.SSE.A.2 Use structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it

A1.A.CED.A.2 Create equations and graph in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations with two variables on coordinate axes with labels and scales.

A1.A.CED.A.3 Represent constraints by equations, inequalities, and systems of equations and/or inequalities, and interpret solutions as viable or nonviable options in a modeling context.

A1.A.CED.A.4 Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations.

A1.A.REI.C.4 Write and solve a system of linear equations in context.

A1.A.REI.D.6 Explain why x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y=f(x) and y=g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equations f(x) = g(x); find the approximate solutions using technology.

A1.A.REI.D.7 Graph the solutions to a linear inequality in two variables as a half plane and graph the solution set to a system of linear inequalities in two variables as the intersection of the corresponding half-planes.

A1.F.IF.A.2 Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.

A1.F.IF.C.6 Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key featurs of the graph, by hand and using technology.

A1.F.IF.C.7 Write a function defined by an expression in different but equivalent forms to reveal and explain different properties of the function.

A1.F.IF.C.8 Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).

A1.F.BF.A.1 Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities

A1.F.LE.A.2 Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a table, a description of a relationship, or input-output pairs.

A1.F.LE.B.4 Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context

A1.N.Q.A.1 Use units as a way to understand problems and to guide the solution of multistep problems; choose and interpret units consistently in formulas; choose and interpret the scale and the origin in graphs and data displays.

A1.S.ID.B.4 Represent data on two quantitative variables on a scatter plot, and describe how the variables are realted.

A1.S.ID.C.5 Interpret slope (rate of change) and the intercept (constant term) of a linear model in context of the data.

A1.S.ID.C.6 Use technology to compute and interpret the correlation coefficient of a linear fit.

A1.A.APR.A.1 Understand that polynomials form a system analogous to the integers, namely, they are closed under the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication; Add, subtract and multiply polynomials.
