A.SSE.1 High School - Algebra Interpret the structure of expressions. Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context.? • Interpret parts of an expression, such as terms, factors, and coefficients. • Interpret complicated expressions by viewing one or more of their parts as a single entity. For example, interpret P(1+r)^n as the product of P and a factor not depending on P. 0
A.SSE.2 High School - Algebra Interpret the structure of expressions. Use the structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it. For example, see x^4 – y^4 as (x^2)^2 – (y^2)^2, thus recognizing it as a difference of squares that can be factored as (x^2 – y^2)(x^2 + y^2). 0
A.SSE.3 High School - Algebra Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems. Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression.? • a. Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines. • b. Complete the square in a quadratic expression to reveal the maximum or minimum value of the function it defines. • c. Use the properties of exponents to transform expressions for exponential functions. For example the expression 1.15^t can be rewritten as (1.15^1/12)^12t ˜ 1.012^12t to reveal the approximate equivalent monthly interest rate if the annual rate is 15%. 0
A.SSE.4 High School - Algebra Write expressions in equivalent forms to solve problems. Derive the formula for the sum of a finite geometric series (when the common ratio is not 1), and use the formula to solve problems. For example, calculate mortgage payments.? 2
