The learning goal of this project is Graphing Rational Functions.
The students will answer the following questions for each function:
a. If possible, write the equation in simplest form _________
b. What is the Domain of this function? ________________
c. What is the Y-intercept? ________X-intercept?________
d.Vertical Asymptotes/Holes ? ______if yes,
sketch the graph and write the equation_____________
This lesson meets the Common Core State Standard for Mathematics, CCSS.F.IF.7 “Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases, and using technology for more complicated cases.” http://www.corestandards.org/
Students will require about 1 -2 periods in the computer lab using graphing software like Geogebra.org or Desmos.com, a graphing calculator.
I hope this is helpful to your students as they move on to studying advanced algebra.
