Ch 22: OAE Mathematics: Piecewise Functions

About This Chapter

Ohio uses the OAE Mathematics test to assess the knowledge and skills of its math teachers. Look over this chapter's lessons on piecewise functions, then showcase your knowledge on the examination.

OAE Mathematics: Piecewise Functions - Chapter Summary

Watching this chapter's online video lessons can show you how to identify and implement piecewise functions as well as how to perform other operations. For example, the videos illustrate the steps for writing piecewise functions and translating graphs. Use what you discover to answer OAE Mathematics examination questions. This chapter aims to help you review how to:

  • Define and provide examples of piecewise functions
  • Determine a function's domain
  • Graph a piecewise function
  • Translate functions by shifting, reflecting and stretching them

This chapter's online video lessons discuss these topics in detail, and they could help you answer questions on piecewise functions when you sit for the OAE Mathematics examination. You can study anytime or anywhere as long as you have access to a web-ready device. Get the most out of the videos by taking the quizzes that follow each lesson.
