In the last year of school, students in Grade 12 always battle with mixed emotions of nostalgia and excitement. By this year, they also have clarity on what courses and colleges they want to pursue and what career path aligns with their passion. A student’s interest and ability in Mathematics also plays a critical role in determining their professional goals in this stage.

FUNCTIONS

A function related input to an output. It works like a machine that takes something in (input) and at the end gives us something back (output). F(x) is the traditional way of expressing functions. Each function has three parts the Input, the Relationship, and the Output. Understanding functions is important for future math works.

FAMILIES OF FUNCTIONS

A family of functions is a set of functions whose equations have a similar form. The “parent” of the family is the equation in the family with the simplest form. There are many different kinds of functions, these different types of functions can be grouped together into several different categories called families of functions.

Quadratic relation is a type of relationship, where the second differences within Y coordinates are equal. Quadratic relation is represented by a parabola on a graph. A quadratic relation can be written in the following forms: vertex form y=a〖(x-h)〗^2+k, or standard form y=ax^2+bx+c, or factored form y= a(x-s)(x-r).

RATIONAL FUNCTIONS

A function that be written as a polynomial divided by a polynomial is a rational function. It is rational because one is divided by the other, like a ratio. Note that every polynomial function is a rational function with denominator of 1. A function that cannot be written in the form of a polynomial such as f(x)=Sin(x), is not a rational function.

LOGARITHMS

The logarithm base b of a number x is the power to which b must be raised in order to equal x. In other words, A logarithm answers the question of how many of one number do we multiply to get another number. Logarithm is written like . For example,  so we say the logarithm of 8 with base 2 is equal to 3 since .

EXPONENTIAL AND LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS

In exponential functions the variable is the power rather than the base. Exponential functions have the form of f(x)=b^x where b>0 and b ≠ 1. Exponential functions are important in real world problems such as modeling populations, computing investments and a lot of other applications. Logarithmic functions are the inverses of exponential functions.

ROOTS AND RATIONAL EXPONENTS

Using rational numbers as exponents. A rational exponent represents both an integer exponent and an nth root. The root is found in the denominator and the integer exponent is found in the numerator. In other words, a rational exponent is an exponent that is a fraction. For example, √4= 4^(1/2). Using rational exponents are sometimes easier and quicker to simplify the radical expressions.

For example,  is a 2 × 3 matrix, because there are two rows and three columns. Matrices are important in mathematics because they help us work with liner equations faster and easier. They are also used for plotting graphs, statistics and a lot more application in science and real life problems.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is the study of triangles with emphasis on calculations involving the lengths of sides and the angles. Trigonometry is based on six functions, namely Sine, Cosine, Tangent, Cotangent, Secant, and Cosecant. Trigonometry also includes study of the properties of these functions and their graphs. Trigonometry is an important field in mathematics with a lot of applications in real life problems, like calculating the waves and tides in oceans, creating maps, satellite systems and a lot more.

Conic sections

The family of curves including circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas are called conic sections. All these geometric figures can be obtained by the intersection a double cone with a plane, hence the name conic section. The general equation that covers all conic sections is Ax^2+Bxy+Cy^2+Dx+Ey+F=0 from this equation we can derive equations for circle, ellipse, parabola and hyperbola. Conic sections have a lot of application in real life such as, studying the path of the planets around the sun, designing car headlights and a lot more applications.

Complex numbers

Complex number is a number with two components, namely real part and imaginary part. Complex numbers are written as a+bi where a is the real part and b is the imaginary part where i is the square root of -1. The plus sign in the complex number does not mean the addition, it is only a symbol to separate the two components of the complex number. Complex numbers are important in engineering fields for solving electrical equations.

Polar coordinate is a way to pinpoint where you are on a map or graph by how far away and at what angle the point is. The polar form of a complex number is another way to represent a complex number. In polar form we find the real and imaginary components in terms of r and θ where r is the length of the vector and θ is the angle made with the real axis. The polar form of a complex number a+bi is equal to r(cos⁡θ+i sin⁡θ)

Two-dimensional vectors

Vectors can be represented graphically using an arrow which points from the vector’s initial point to its terminal point. The length of the arrow-shaft represents the magnitude of the vector. To describe the direction of the vector, we normally use degrees from the horizontal line, in a counter-clockwise direction.

Numbers can have interesting patterns, like Arithmetic sequences Geometric sequences and so on. Number sequence is a list of numbers in a special order. The sum of infinite terms that follow a rule is called a Series. Sequences and series are important mathematic subject for future and more advanced math problems.

Probability

Probability is the chance of something happening or how likely it is that some event will happen. Probability is a number between 0 (not happening) to 1 (certainly happening). Easiest way to understand probability is to toss a coin. There are two outcomes of tossing a coin namely Heads or Tails. So, the probability of the coin landing Heads is 1⁄2 same as the probability of the coin landing tails 1⁄2

A probability distribution is a table or an equation that linked each outcome of a statistical experiment with its probability of occurrence. A probability distribution shows the probabilities of all the possible outcomes of an experiment, instead of just a particular or individual outcome. Probability distributions are important in real life because of most the phenomena happing around us can be described with a probability distribution. For example, heights, blood pressure, measurement errors are all following the normal distribution.
