Goal 1
Identify the major parts of the graph of a function. ( domain, range, increasing intervals, decreasing intervals, constant intervals, maximums, minimums,and intercepts.)
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 TINspire 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?

Goal 2
Represent a piece wise function with a table or graph by evaluating several values of x. Identify which evaluation rule (which part of the piece wise function) to use for a specific value of x. Write the function rule for a given graph of a piecewise function.
