If absent on the day of a scheduled examination, hand in assessment task or oral task, a Year 11 or Year 12
student must:
● Notify the school on that day of the reason for your absence. This could potentially be with advance
notice. The Head Teacher of the relevant course must be notified.
● Submit a completed Illness/Misadventure Application (supported by evidence) to the Head Teacher
of that course by 3:10pm the date that the assessment task is due. The Misadventure Application is
available on the school website.
● If the student is aware that they will be away from School the date of the examination or hand in task
due to illness/misadventure, the student must submit an application within five (5) business days of
the due date of the assessment task. If students are unable to submit an application on the date that
they are away, they are to submit an application on the first day of their return to school. Failure to
submit an application will result in a zero.

Feedforward and feedback:

During the time prior to Checkpoint 3 you may seek feedforward from your teacher to improve your final

When the task is marked you will receive feedback outlining the strengths of your work and aspects of your
logo which could be improved. This will be done using the rubric provided.

Part 1 – The Task:
Setting the scene:

You run a company called ‘Desmos’ Design’. The client is a company needing a new logo for their product. The
company has employed Desmos’ Design to create their logo.

They want something a little bit like the one below, which is used by a manufacturer of scientific equipment.

The example logo contains:

• A cubic function that has been transformed
• The addition of two absolute value functions
• The product of reciprocal linear functions with linear functions
• The absolute value (y=|f(x)|) of a hyperbola
• Two shaded regions
• Restricted domains

Here is the ‘design brief’ for the logo you need to design for the client.

• You are required to use Desmos to draw the logo: www.desmos.com/calculator.

• The logo must have a section in all four quadrants of the Cartesian plane.
• A variety of colours may be used.
• At least one section of the logo needs to be shaded.
• All the lines, curves and shading in the logo must be created in Desmos using mathematical equations.
Do not include words in the logo.
• The maximum number of different equations to be used is 12.
• For each element of the logo you may use the following as base graphs (a variety should be used):

a straight line a parabola a cubic

an absolute value graph a hyperbola a circle

• The logo must include at least one from each section of the following transformation graphs:

a reciprocal A square root An absolute

1 𝑦𝑦 = �𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) transformation
𝑦𝑦 =
𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) or 𝑦𝑦 2 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) 𝑦𝑦 = |𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥)|
or 𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(|𝑥𝑥|)
Addition of ordinates Product of ordinates A region
𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) + 𝑔𝑔(𝑥𝑥), 𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥)𝑔𝑔(𝑥𝑥)
using an inequality

• You must include one calculation solving an inequality (quadratic, rational function or absolute value)
to demonstrate a domain restriction in part of your logo.

Part 2 – Complete the following information for the client:

What type of product/service does the client make/sell/provide?

The domain and range of your logo:

Domain: x: -9.17<=x<=9.17

Range: y: -11<=y<=5

The equation of every section of the logo. If the equation was the transformation of a function, include
a description of this. State the domain and range of each function.
(If you used fewer than 15 equations, delete the rows you don’t need)

Equation 11 Transformation Domain Range

Equation 12 Transformation Domain Range

Show your working HERE for solving an inequality that represents a domain restriction of one of your
sections. This may be a quadratic inequality, a rational function inequality or an absolute value inequality.
1:-3.45<=y<=0 2: y>=-2x-10 3: y>=2x-10
Domain: x: -3.29<x<3.29 Domain: x: -5<x<-3.29 Domain: x: 3.29<x<5
Range: y: -3.45<=y<=0 Range: y: -3.45<y<0 Range: y: 0<y<3.45

Part 3 – The logo:

Copy and paste a screen capture of the logo as it appears in Desmos, showing:

• The x-axis and the y-axis with a scale on both axis.

• A grid in the background

<Paste HERE>

2020 Mathematics Extension 1 Page 5

Copy and paste a screen capture of the logo as it appears in Desmos, with the axis and grid hidden.

<Paste HERE>

Part 4: The mathematics behind the logo

Using the completed design, make a ‘voice and screen capture’ video in which you describe the mathematics
used to make the logo.

The video must run for no more than 3 minutes and should explain, for example:
• Each equation used and the part of the logo it produces
• The processes used for choosing the equations and limiting the domain and range as appropriate
• Using a part of your diagram, provide an explanation of the key tips in how to take a function and
create a graph for one of the following:
o A reciprocal function graph. 𝑦𝑦 =
o An absolute value function graph[𝑦𝑦 = |𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥)|, 𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(|𝑥𝑥|)]
o A square root function graph [𝑦𝑦 = �𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥), 𝑦𝑦 2 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥)]
o A new graph from the addition of ordinates 𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) + 𝑔𝑔(𝑥𝑥),
o A new graph from the multiplication of ordinates 𝑦𝑦 = 𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥). 𝑔𝑔(𝑥𝑥)].
• How did the shaded region come to be?

Upload and submit your video.
