# Ch 8: Understanding Algebraic Functions

In this chapter, you will get reacquainted with algebraic functions and their uses. As you follow along with the instructors in the lessons, you will see how the different functions are used in the related formulas.

## Understanding Algebraic Functions - Chapter Summary

To prove your mastery of mathematics, you will have to show how well you remember and understand some of the more fundamental lessons, such as algebraic functions. The information from this chapter has been designed to help you recall basic terminology and equations associated with algebraic functions. At the end of the chapter, you should have no issues answering questions about the following:

• Definitions for domain and range
• The definition of the range of values
• How to implement the recursive rules for sequences
• The purpose of piecewise functions and the process of identifying their domain
• Translating and graphing piecewise functions
• Composite functions analysis

We've created these materials with certain goals in mind, and one of those goals includes giving you practical and effective tools. After all, no matter how elaborate a study guide may be, if it's not practical for the user, it's virtually useless. That's why we keep our learners in mind, and we give you what you need. This includes video lessons and transcripts that are available 24/7 on an online platform that you can access any time from practically any location.

The tools we provide to you are effective because they address your needs. For instance, you are most likely preparing for some sort of test or assessment, so these chapters are basically a recap of information you should already know. We understand that you don't have to relearn everything and that you just need to touch on a few topics that are less familiar. That's why we break all of our chapters into smaller lessons. You can look through the lesson titles to find the exact areas you need to review. This keeps you from wasting time reading through information you already know.
