This is set of practice questions for rational functions. The assignment is best given at the beginning of a rational functions unit. Questions are intended to help students build confidence with rational functions by relating them to their current knowledge of domain discontinuity and polynomial zeros. The assignment focuses on the relationship between domain restriction and vertical asymptotes. Additionally, the latter portion of the assignment is intended to help student establish a criteria for finding horizontal asymptotes. Students are encouraged to use a graphing calculator to help examine asymptotes and end behavior.
