About This Chapter
Graph Basics - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives
Our experienced instructors will help you master the basics of graphing. Not only will you learn the parts of a graph but also how mathematical information is represented using different types graphs. Complete a lesson then take the quiz to see what you have learned. After finishing this chapter, you will be able to:
- Name the parts of a graph
- List different types of graphs and how they are used
- Explain how information is represented on a graph
|Graphs: Types, Examples and Functions||Learn the eight common graphs in math and how to identify each of them.|
|What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?||Examine the common math graph and learn its basic components.|
|Understanding the Interplay Between Geometric and Analytic Information on a Graph||See how geometric and analytic data is represented on a graph.|
1. What Are the Different Parts of a Graph?
Being able to read a graph isn't just vital for an algebra class. Graphs and charts are used everywhere! We'll take a crash course on the basic x/y plane used in algebra and the fundamental vocab you need.
2. Graphs: Types, Examples & Functions
In this lesson, learn how you can differentiate from the eight most common types of functions and their graphs. Learn the distinct look of each so you can easily distinguish them from each other.
