Graphing Basic Functions

1. Graphing Basic Functions

Graphing basic functions on a Cartesian plane is similar to finding a spot on a map. Learn more about the similarities between maps and graphs, the functions of ordered pairs and quadrants, and how to graph their functions.

Polynomial Functions: Properties and Factoring

2. Polynomial Functions: Properties and Factoring

Polynomial functions are those in which the sum is multiplied by its constants and can be used to describe virtually any occurrence. Learn about the properties of polynomials and quadratic polynomials, factoring quadratics, and how to solve them using the quadratic equation.

Polynomial Functions: Exponentials and Simplifying

3. Polynomial Functions: Exponentials and Simplifying

Polynomial functions are all about multiplication of their powers, and have unique properties when multiplying and dividing to simplify. See the properties of polynomials, how powers are used daily life, and the ways the power properties appear using multiplication and division.

Slopes and Tangents on a Graph

4. Slopes and Tangents on a Graph

In mathematics, slopes and tangents help determine ratios and rates of change. Learn how to show slopes and tangents as lines on a graph, explore the concept of slope as it pertains to hills, and recognize how slope can be used to describe steepness.

Horizontal and Vertical Asymptotes

5. Horizontal and Vertical Asymptotes

Horizontal and vertical asymptotes on a graph reveal points close to the x and y axes that run on infinitely. Learn more about asymptotes, define horizontal and vertical asymptotes, and understand how asymptotes are comparable to an unreachable finish line.

Implicit Functions

6. Implicit Functions

Implicit functions in math are equations that depend on both x and y, neither of which can be separated. Learn more about these functions in relation to ovals and circles, and review an example of an implicit function.

Finding Relative Extrema of a Function: Practice Problems & Explanation

7. Finding Relative Extrema of a Function: Practice Problems & Explanation

Finding the points at which a function attains its highest or lowest value has many practical applications. In this lesson, you will learn how to use basic calculus to find the relative minimums and maximums of any function. Only basic knowledge of finding derivatives and solving equations using algebra will be necessary to understand this topic.
