MCF 3M1 – FUNCTIONS and Applications EXAM & CULMINATING REVIEW

MCF 3M Exam Review

If you have lost your textbook, you need to bring a cheque made out to Bishop Reding Secondary School in the amount of $105.

Bring to the exam three or more sharpened pencils, a big eraser, a ruler, a pencil crayon, a highlighter and a scientific calculator. There will be no sharing of materials during the exam.

How to study: Redo your tests, quizzes and assignments; print your blank notes and redo them (only look at the solutions to check); create summary sheets for each chapter (if not done so already); complete all your exam review questions; redo any homework you feel necessary.

*** Additional questions may be added in the New Year.

Make study notes on the following:

  •   Definition of a function
  •   The vertical line test
  •   Determining the type of function by its first or second differences
  •   Function notation. E.g. f(3-1) vs. f(3) – f(1)
  •   How to transform f (x)  x2 (graphing y  a(x  h)2  k or = ( − )( − ))
  •   Domain and Range of lines and quadratics
  •   Expansion of two binomials (FOIL method)
  •   Factoring

     Common factoring Factoringsimpletrinomials f(x)x2 bxc Decomposition f(x)ax2 bxc

     Special Cases: Perfect Square trinomials and Difference of Squares

  •   Quadratic Equation versus Quadratic Expression
  •   Factored vs. Standard vs. Vertex Form
  •   Solving a quadratic equation – using factoring, quadratic formula
  •   Zeros, roots, x-intercepts
  •   Find the vertex using the axis of symmetry
  •   Find the a value of a quadratic given the graph.

ADDITIONAL:
The review below gives you the questions that you should work on to prepare yourself for the Culminating Activity and Final Examination. However, your preparation should not be limited to these questions only.

The Knowledge and Applications sections of unit quizzes and tests should also be reviewed.

Only when you can complete all of the questions, without assistance from others or from your notes, will you be prepared.

If you would still like further practice:

  •   use the Mid-Chapter Review found within each unit
  •   use the Chapter Test found after the review in each unit
