    CONTENT: Exploring Quadratic Functions.  Describe and model phenomena using functions, including exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, polynomial, rational, step, absolute value, and square root.  Describe similarities and differences among the families of linear, quadratic, and exponential functions using graphs, tables, formulas and verbal descriptions Describe the graphical significance of parameters.
    PERFORMANCE Graph and Explanation : Students will be asked to find the axis of symmetry, the vertex, and graph the function in the Y=(X--h)/\ 2--C form, then explain the difference between the graph and the model f(x)=X/\2. Short answer
