COOP Exam: Properties of Functions Chapter Objectives

Participating Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Newark and the Diocese of Paterson in New Jersey and New York require 8th grade students interested in admission to take the COOP exam. The test measures students' academic achievement in language, reading and math, as well as their aptitude and memory. The exam is broken into two components: aptitude and achievement. The topics covered in this Properties of Functions chapter are located in the math section of the achievement component.

All of the questions on the exam are multiple-choice. You can use the self-assessment quizzes with the lessons in this chapter to get practice with questions formatted like those you'll see on the test.

What is a Function: Basics and Key Terms

1. What is a Function: Basics and Key Terms

Mapping numbers sounds complex, but we do it when we buy gasoline. We pump gasoline, and the gas station charges us based on the amount of gas that we pump. Learn how this relates to functions while reviewing the basics and notations in this lesson.

How to Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide Functions

2. How to Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide Functions

Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing functions is about as simple as substituting in expressions and then just doing whichever operation it asks you to do. Check out this video lesson to see some examples of this and learn just how easy it is!

What Is Domain and Range in a Function?

3. What Is Domain and Range in a Function?

The domain and range are the possible outputs and inputs of a function. In this lesson, learn about what might restrict the domain and how to figure out the domain and range from a graph.

How to Compose Functions

4. How to Compose Functions

Function composition is the process of putting two or more functions together. This video lesson will explain how this process works and also show you how to evaluate functions that have been composed.

Inverse Functions

5. Inverse Functions

Inverse functions are two functions that do exactly opposite things. Check out this lesson to learn about how to write inverse functions, find inverse functions, and predict whether or not they exist.

Applying Function Operations Practice Problems

6. Applying Function Operations Practice Problems

In this lesson, learn how to apply all the different properties of functions to solve complex problems. From function operations and composition to domain and range, get your practice here!

Linear and Nonlinear Functions

7. Linear and Nonlinear Functions

After watching this video lesson, you'll be able to tell the differences between linear and nonlinear functions. You'll also be able to identify both types just by looking at graphs.
