Permission granted to copy for classroom use.Name:Date:Piecewise FunctionsObjectiveIn this lesson, you will analyze key features of piecewise functions algebraically and graphically.Building Piecewise FunctionsA piecewise function is made up ofpieces that don’t. Each piecerelatesxandyin a different way.Review the different function types.LinearIn the formy=mx+bwherem:slope andb: y-intercept.Always aline that is either increasing ordecreasing.This is the graph of the parent function:f(x) =.Polynomialdegree: ends of the graph reach in the same directiondegree: ends of the graph reach in opposite directionsThese are the graphs of the parent quadratic functionf(x) =x2and the parent cubic functionf(x) =x3.ExponentialIn the formy=abx.0 <b< 1: function is alwaysb> 1: function is alwaysThese are the graphs of exponential functions𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) =12𝑥𝑥and𝑓𝑓(𝑥𝑥) = 2𝑥𝑥. Both have a horizontal asymptote aty=.
