2.0     ALGEBRA
  C   Understand the Concept of Non-Linear Functions
    A.RP.08.01 Identify and represent linear functions, quadratic functions, and other simple functions including inversely proportional relationships (y = k/x); cubics (y = ax3); roots (y = √x ); and exponentials (y = ax , a > 0); using tables, graphs, and equations.*
    A.PA.08.02 For basic functions, e.g., simple quadratics, direct and indirect variation, and population growth, describe how changes in one variable affect the others.

    A.RP.08.06 Graph factorable quadratic functions, finding where the graph intersects the x-axis and the coordinates of the vertex; use words “parabola” and “roots”; include functions in vertex form and those with leading coefficient –1, e.g., y = x2 – 36, y = (x – 2)2 – 9; y = – x2; y = – (x – 3)2.
  E   Recognize, represent, and apply common formulas
    A.FO.08.07 Recognize and apply the common formulas.(a + b)2 = a2 + 2 ab + b2, (a – b)2 = a2 – 2 ab + b2, (a + b) (a – b) = a2 – b2 ; represent geometrically
