# Ch 16: Geometric Graphing Functions

This chapter can help you prepare for the ELM math exam. With these videos and self-assessment tests, you can learn about graphing geometric functions.

## Geometric Graphing Functions - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter will allow you to learn how to graph functions by plotting points, determine the point-slope form of the equation of a line and understand the use of the midpoint formula. When you have finished, you will be familiar with the following topics:

• Graphing functions by plotting points
• Using and graphing standard form linear equations
• Finding and applying the intercepts of a line
• Graphing undefined slope and zero slope
• The point-slope formula
• How to use the distance and midpoint formulas
• Definition of a parabola and its forms
• Graphing polynomials

Experienced instructors explain each concept in these concise lessons and use real-life examples to make their points clear. You can test your knowledge with the self-assessment quizzes and rewatch the entire lesson, or just certain parts, to reinforce what you've learned.

### Geometric Graphing Functions Chapter Objectives

Many beginning students at California State University take the ELM as a means of assessing their mathematics skills. The ELM contains 50 multiple-choice questions, with a 90-minute time limit. Questions on graphing functions are in the Geometry section, which makes up about 30% of the entire test. Topics covered in this chapter that appear on the test include:

• Graphing a function by plotting points determined by an algebraic expression
• Graphing linear and quadratic functions
• Determining the midpoint of a line segment
