CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSF.IF.A.1 Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f is a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) denotes the output of corresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x).
I Can Statement:
I understand the definition of a function.
