NAMES
To describe these graphs we'll need Key Words:
the interval(s) within a function’s domain, where the
y
‐values of the function get larger, moving from left to right
•
intervals of increase
•
intervals of decrease
•
odd function
•
even function
•
continuous function
•
discontinuity
•
end behaviour
describing what happens to the y‐values of the function as x gets large (x approaches ∞) and as x gets
small (x approaches –∞)
the interval(s) within a function’s domain, where the
y
‐values of the function get larger, moving from left to right
the interval(s) within a function’s domain, where the
y
‐values of the function get smaller, moving from left to right
any function that has rotational symmetry about the origin; algebraically, all odd functions have the property
f
