FTCE Math: Comparing Properties of Functions - Chapter Summary

To help prepare you for the FTCE Mathematics 6-12 exam, the video lessons in the chapter demonstrate the algebraic and numeric properties of a function. You'll also review how different functions can be represented on a graph and how graphs can be used to identify the parent functions. With a thorough review of this chapter, you should be able to:

  • Compare properties of functions on the basis of algebra
  • Apply the vertical line test and compare functions using graphs
  • Distinguish between functions by looking at the numerical values of the variables

Each of these topics is covered in a short and interesting video with simple and comprehensible explanations. Each lesson also has an associated quiz in multiple-choice format that can help you prepare for your FTCE Mathematics 6-12 exam.
