A graphing rational functions assignment with 3 different versions.
Students are expected to be able to solve for x and y intercepts, horizontal and vertical asymptotes and oblique or slant asymptotes without relying on a calculator. Two graphing questions on the first page, the 2nd page is a longer in-context question where students are reminded of the real world applications for rational functions. The three applications involve a measles outbreak, annual cost of an appliance and diluting a NaCl solution.
There are three assignments, (A, B and C) which cover the same outcomes and could be used in different sections of the same course, or spread out within a class to reduce copying.
Answers are included for each assignment. A doc file is 6 pages long (2 pgs for each of 3 assignments) plus a pdf file of 6 pages, making 12 total pages.
