# Ch 14: Graphs of Algebraic Functions

Watch our video lessons to understand graphs and their role in algebra. Learn about number lines, graphing basic functions, slopes and tangents, and graphing the inverse function.

## Graphs of Algebraic Functions - Chapter Summary

These video lessons show you how graphs work in algebra. Our instructors explain what a number line is and show the parts of a graph. Other lessons look at graphing basic functions, inverse functions and functions of functions.

Polynomials functions are discussed here, as are exponentials, logarithms and the natural log. You will find out about horizontal and vertical asymptotes, as well as implicit functions. After completing all the lessons in this chapter, you should be prepared to:

• Describe a number line
• Name parts of a graph
• Plot points on the coordinate plane
• Graph a variety of functions
• Explain the properties of polynomials functions
• Understand exponentials and logarithms
• Describe slopes and tangents on a graph
• Show the equation of a line using point-slope formula

Our lessons are brief and entertaining, and all include self-assessment quizzes that enable you to check what you've learned. The timeline's jump feature allows you to quickly find topics in each lesson that you need to study a bit more. The lessons are all led by instructors who are experts in the field. If you need extra help, it's easy to contact them with your questions.
