Learn functions such as linear, quadratic, absolute, hybrid, inverse, composite, trig and master their transformations.
The aim of this course is to provide you with an introduction to and a solid basis for further study in mathematics in the fields of science, mathematics, business, economics and engineering. An understanding of functions, transformations and their applications will give you the skills needed in modeling and lay a foundation for more advanced math and science course.
Learn from a mathematician and master educator in this streamlined course designed to teach you exactly what you need to know. Use the companion student booklet to practice what you have learned as well as checking your responses with the provided worked solutions.
This course will cover
Introduction to functions
Sketching linear functions

How to get the most out of this course
This course is broken up into small individual sections designed to help you learn exactly what you need to know, maximising your time. View the tutorial video and follow along. Pause and take notes as needed. After each of the tutorial videos you will find a ‘check of understanding’ which consists of 5 questions that relate to the material covered in the video/s. Complete the questions and check your Answers with the worked solutions so you can see how you are progressing.
