## Competence aims after year 10

• explore and generalise multiplication of polynomials algebraically and geometrically
• explore and compare the properties of different functions using digital tools
• create, solve and explain equation sets related to practical situations
• calculate the slope of a linear function, and use it to explain the concepts change per unit and average speed
• explore the relationship between constant change by percentage, growth factors and exponential functions
• extract and interpret relevant information from texts related to purchases, sales and different types of loans, and use this to formulate and solve problems
• plan, carry out and present an exploratory work related to one’s personal finances
