TN Ready Standards

**Goal 1**- A.REI.1

**Explain each step in solving a simple equation as following from the equality of numbers asserted at the previous step, starting from the assumption that the original equation has a solution. Construct a viable argument to justify a solution method.**

**Goal 2**

**Identify the basic characteristics of the parent function for each family of functions and determine the family to which a given function belongs based on its characteristics.**

**Goal 3**

**Identify the major parts of the graph of a function. ( domain, range, increasing intervals, decreasing intervals, constant intervals, maximums, minimums,and intercepts**

**.)**

Essential Questions?

- What is GNAW? Use it to represent a relation/function of your choice.
- What is the difference in a relation and a function? How do you distinguish between the two both graphically and symbolically?
- What is the domain of a function? What is the range of a function? What does it mean if they are "unbounded"?
- How do you determine when a function is undefined? What does that look like on the graph? in the TI-Nspire table?
- What is the importance of the x and y intercepts? Describe them both graphically and algebraically.
- Describe the difference in an open and closed interval. How are these notated in an inequality? What is the difference in the two when using interval notation?
- What change occurs when intervals within a function change from increasing to decreasing? What are these points called? Be specific and use algebraic terminology.
- When given the equation of a function, how do you determine the family to which the function belongs?
