Ch 8: Glencoe Math Chapter 8: Functions & Inequalities

About This Chapter

The Functions & Inequalities chapter of this Glencoe Math Companion Course helps students learn the essential lessons associated with functions and inequalities. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Functions & Inequalities textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in the Glencoe Functions & Inequalities chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons with this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the functions and inequalities topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn about:

  • The creation of function tables
  • Arithmetic sequences
  • Geometric sequences
  • Linear, positive, negative, increasing and decreasing functions
  • The rules for graphing functions
  • How graphs and tables can be applied to real-world issues

Function Table in Math: Definition, Rules & Examples

1. Function Table in Math: Definition, Rules & Examples

Functions can be represented in four different ways. In this lesson, we will learn what a function table is, and how and when to use a function table to represent a function. We will also explore the rules that define a given function table.

Arithmetic Sequences: Definition & Finding the Common Difference

2. Arithmetic Sequences: Definition & Finding the Common Difference

Watch this video lesson to learn the pattern that defines an arithmetic sequence. Learn how to identify arithmetic sequences as well as find the pattern easily. You will also learn the formula you can use to write any number in your sequence.

Working with Geometric Sequences

3. Working with Geometric Sequences

In this video lesson, we'll learn how to recognize when a sequence of numbers is a geometric sequence, how to find the common ratio and how to expand a sequence to as many numbers as we want!

Identify Where a Function is Linear, Increasing or Decreasing, Positive or Negative

4. Identify Where a Function is Linear, Increasing or Decreasing, Positive or Negative

Functions do all kinds of fun things. In this lesson, learn how to identify traits of functions such as linear or nonlinear, increasing or decreasing and positive or negative.

Graph Functions by Plotting Points

5. Graph Functions by Plotting Points

Let's say you have a function. What does it look like? How do you graph it? In this lesson, we'll learn how to graph functions by determining and plotting points.

Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

6. Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

We use tables and graphs in algebra as ways to visually show an equation or function. But do we really use these in the real world? Is it that important to learn about tables and graphs? Find out in this video lesson.

What is an Inequality?

7. What is an Inequality?

Deciding how to spend your money can be a tricky thing. Should you save it, invest it, or enjoy it? Learn how inequalities can help you make your decision!

How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

8. How to Graph 1- and 2-Variable Inequalities

So an inequality is just an equation with a less than or greater than symbol. But what is the difference between 1 and 2 variable inequalities? What does have a greater than or equal to symbol change? When do you use a number line instead of a coordinate plane? Get those answers here!

Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

9. Graphing Inequalities: Practice Problems

If you're already pretty familiar with what inequalities are and just looking for a place to practice your skills, this is the place. This lesson covers topics like 1-variable, 2-variable, compound, and systems of inequalities.

Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

10. Solving Linear Inequalities: Practice Problems

Linear inequalities may look intimidating, but they're really not much different than linear equations. In this lesson, we'll practice solving a variety of linear inequalities.
