Ch 29: Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool: Functions & Graphing

About This Chapter

The Functions & Graphing chapter of this Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool Companion Course aligns with the same chapter in the Saxon Math 7/6 Homeschool textbook. These simple and fun video lessons are about five minutes long and help you learn the essential lessons about functions and graphing.

How It Works:

  • Find the lesson within this chapter that corresponds to what you're studying in the Functions & Graphing chapter of your textbook.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the functions and graphing topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quiz after watching each video lesson 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.

Chapter Topics

You'll learn all of the functions and graphing topics covered in the textbook chapter, including:

  • Point plotting on the coordinate plane
  • Function notation and rules
  • Graphing basic functions and plotting in the Cartesian plane
  • Finding and graphing inverse functions
  • Solving and graphing composite functions
  • Kinds of function transformations

Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

1. Plotting Points on the Coordinate Plane

If you'll be working with a graph, otherwise known as the coordinate plane, it's essential to understand how it works. This includes learning the parts of a graph, identifying points and plotting points.

Functions: Identification, Notation & Practice Problems

2. Functions: Identification, Notation & Practice Problems

A function is simply a rule that takes one number and turns it into another. But some special conditions must apply for it to be a true mathematical function. Learn about those conditions and how we write functions here!

Graphing Basic Functions

3. Graphing Basic Functions

Graphs are just like maps - when you know the language! Review how locations have x and y coordinates similar to latitude and longitude, and how to plot points in the Cartesian plane.

Understanding and Graphing the Inverse Function

4. Understanding and Graphing the Inverse Function

If you use a function to map a to b, is there a way to go back from b to a again? Learn how to find and graph inverse functions so that you can turn a into b and back into a.

Compounding Functions and Graphing Functions of Functions

5. Compounding Functions and Graphing Functions of Functions

We know that functions map numbers to other numbers, so what happens when you have a function of a function? Welcome to functions within functions, the realm of composite functions!

Transformations: How to Shift Graphs on a Plane

6. Transformations: How to Shift Graphs on a Plane

What is a transformation? Well, it's something that transforms one function into another! To see what I mean and how that looks, check out this lesson!
