Course description

Understand functions as set mappings, tables, and graphs. Using these tools, learn how to work with functions and transform them and their graphs. Then, use the framework of functions to do a deep dive on quadratics. You'll explore factoring, completing the square, learn about polynomials, and eventually develop the quadratic equation.
