The focus of this unit will be on the behavior of functions and examining some of their applications to the real world. The way that functions will be introduced is by individually describing the characteristics of families of different function types (linear, polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric). The composition of functions through possible combination of different types of component functions will also be investigated. Other operations on functions such as transformations via shifting, scaling and reflection will be presented, along with the existence and meaning of inverse functions. This initial part of the course will then be used to provide a foundation for examining the rate of change of a function. Principally this involves defining the elementary principles of differential calculus and then utilising these with respect to the types of functions mentioned above. As a final topic an introduction to integral calculus is presented.
