ENROLLMENT OPENS Oct. 13, 2019 – STREAM: Functions as Objects (Nov. 3-23, 2019)

It’s time to fight back against the “function machine”! This course examines functions as objects in their own right, rather than treating them as rules, algorithms, or machines. We will explore Montana’s Common Core Standards for functions in high school with a focus on building functions. Finally, we will extend and complete our investigation with a modeling activity.
