This page is designed to help students develop their ability to recognize graphs of functions. These graphs depict relationships between variables. This page offers an introduction to recognizing the shapes that graphical relationships take over a certain X-interval.
Anyone who is facing an introduction to graphs of functions in either an Algebra, Advanced Algebra, or Coordinate Geometry course would encounter a beneficial experience while using this page.
Function Toolkit Explanation
Certain graphs of functions are very important to mathematicians and scientists for their use and form as a basis for exploring other functions. These functions make up what may be called a "toolkit" in that mastery of these basic tools will make exploring additional functions much more accessible. 12 functions are explored here making up this toolkit
