Build mastery in Functions and Graphs to demonstrate proficiency in assessment and examination tasks.
In this learning program, students explore the graphical representation of simple algebraic functions including polynomials and power functions of a single real variable. We will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to work effectively with functions and graphs. This will involve a thorough investigation into the key features of functions and their graphs such as axis intercepts, domain (including the concept of maximal, natural or implied domain), co-domain and range, stationary points, asymptotic behaviour and symmetry. Students will study the behaviour of functions and their graphs in a variety of modelling contexts and theoretical investigations.
This learning program is made up of the following 5 topics, broken down into 32 concepts.
Writing and interpreting the empty set
