Rev.S08 2 Learning Objectives Upon completing this module, you should be able to: 1. Recognize the characteristics common to families of functions. 2. Evaluate and graph piecewise-defined functions. 3. Identify vertical and horizontal asymptotes. 4. Graph functions using vertical and horizontal translations. Graph functions using stretching and shrinking. Graph functions using reflections. Combine transformations. Determine if a function is odd, even, or neither. http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

4 Rev.S08 What are Power Functions? http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Power functions typically have rational exponents . A special type of power function is a root function . Examples of power functions include: f 1 ( x ) = x 2 , f 2 ( x ) = x 3/4 , f 3 ( x ) = x 0.4 , and f 4 ( x ) =
5 Rev.S08 What are Power Functions? (Cont.) http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Often, the domain of a power function f is restricted to nonnegative numbers . Suppose the rational number p/q is written in lowest terms. The the domain of f ( x ) = x p/q is all real numbers whenever q is odd and all nonnegative numbers whenever q is even . The following graphs show 3 common power functions.
