Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 912
Domain-Subdomain: Functions: Linear, Quadratic, & Exponential Models
Cluster: Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts
Cluster: Interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation they model. (Algebra 1 - Supporting Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Additional Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
