mat 251 – calculus for life sciences fall 2009 mat 251 / exam one / study guide This list is not necessarily exhaustive. Any topic covered in lecture or homework is fair game for the test. Compare and contrast: Linear vs. exponential, exponential growth vs. exponential decay, function vs. one-to-one, horizontal vs. vertical line tests, horizontal vs. vertical asymptote, polynomial vs. rational function, and doubling time vs half life. Evaluate expressions involving function notation. Graph families of functions such as linear, power, exponential, and logarithmic Describe the attributes of a graph including domain, range, intercepts, local maxima,
