Throughout their Pk12 education experience, mathematically literate students will:
Develop a Deep and Flexible Conceptual Understanding 

Students will expand their understanding of the number system to include the complex numbers. Their knowledge of functions develops to include quadratics, exponential, logarithmic, rational, polynomial, and radical equations and their inverses (when they exist). Tools such as graphing calculators help establish comprehension of properties belonging to of each of these equations. 
Develop Accurate and Appropriate Procedural Fluency 

Students develop fluency using arithmetic and function operations with exponential, logarithmic, rational, polynomial, and radical expressions and equations. They will also develop new procedures to deal with rational exponents to radicals, exponential to logarithms and vice versa. Students build a sophisticated understanding of the development and application of each of the new algebraic expressions. 
Develop Strategies for Problem Solving 

Students analyze realworld problems and determine an appropriate function to begin the search for a solution. They will then select the proper representation (graphing, algebraic, physical, pictorial) for these functions to approach a solution. Once a solution has become clear, students will use their knowledge of the functions to identify if their answer makes sense within the context of the original problem. 
Develop Mathematical Reasoning 

Students will apply logic to analyze and critique the mathematical truthfulness within a given conclusion. Students will also make connections between the algebraic symbols and the real world properties they represent. Teachers will support mathematical reasoning by giving equal time for students to defend their different paths to a solution and encourage mathematical conversation as to the efficiency of each path. 
Develop a Productive Mathematical Disposition 

Students begin to see how functions allow them to describe the real world around them. They will look for patterns within the real world and formulate proper algebraic representations of such patterns. They will trust their knowledge of functions to select a model to head towards a solution and as their confidence grow they’ll be able to switch between models until a solution becomes apparent. 
Develop the Ability to Make Conjectures, Model, and Generalize


Students will generalize properties of transformations within any given function. They will be able to identify inverses of functions by sight or algebraically. Tools such as graphing calculators will be used to visually create and identify functions and their properties. Given a realworld problem, the students will make conjectures as to the best function best represents the problem.

Develop the Ability to Communicate Mathematically 

Students will become fluent in function notation. They will be able to translate between algebraic and symbolic representations with ease. Students will be able to defend their solutions verbally and in writing. They will be aware of the duality of words (such as zero, solutions, roots, xintercepts) and how they might relate to the same concept.
