Unit One

AOS1 Functions, Relations and Graphs

  • functions and function notation, domain, co-domain and range, representation of a function by rule, graph and table, inverse functions and their graphs
  • power functions
  • polynomial functions

AOS2 Algebra, Number and Structure

  • symbolic notation
  • transformations
  • families of functions

    AOS3 Calculus
  • average rate of change and instantaneous rate of change.
  • interpretation of graphs of empirical data with respect to rate of change such as temperature or pollution levels over time, motion graphs and the height of water in containers of different shapes that are being filled at a constant rate, with informal consideration of continuity and smoothness
  • use of gradient of a tangent at a point on the graph of a function to describe and measure instantaneous rate of change of the function, including consideration of where the rate of change is positive, negative or zero, and the relationship of the gradient function to features of the graph of the original function.

    AOS4 Data analysis, probability and statistics
  • random experiments, sample spaces, outcomes, elementary and compound events, random variables and the distribution of results of experiments
  • simulation using simple random generators such as coins, dice, spinners and pseudo-random generators using technology, and the display and interpretation of results, including informal consideration of proportions in samples
  • counting methods (permutations and combinations)
