Applied Functions

This course, which can be taken alone or as the third mod of Functions and Trigonometry (MAT310A), gives students the opportunity to advance their algebraic and trigonometric knowledge before proceeding with the IB SL Math: Applications sequence or taking Precalculus (MAT340A). The study of functions (in particular, linear, quadratic, cubic, sinusoidal, and exponential) is deepened through more advanced applications and a focus on mathematical modeling, often using a graphing device. A circular functions approach to trigonometry completes the study of trigonometry begun in Functions and Trigonometry. Real-world applications of the skills developed are central to this course. The content of this course may be modified to meet student needs.
