Mr. L’s Function Petting Zoo

Polynomials - function involving the sum of variable powers multiplied by some coefficient.

Polynomials are classified by degree - the largest variable exponent value in the sum.

Absolute Value Function

f(x) = |x|

*Makes the value of the number positive

Step/Greatest Integer Function

f(x) = [x]

* Rounds the value to the greatest integer (removes the decimal places)

Radicals involve a root operation

Rational Functions are formed by the quotient of two polynomial functions.

The Simplest being

Think of the puppies, don’t divide by zero!

Asymptote - the imaginary line a function approaches, but does not reach. Rational functions approach an asymptote at input values that would result in a division by zero.

A function such that a base value is raised to a variable power.

y = 2x

y = (1/2)x

The logarithm

y = ln(x)

Logarithms are the inverse of power functions

Coming Soon to a Precaluclus class near you:

f(x) = sin(x)

f(x) = cos(x)

f(x) = tan(x)

f(x) = csc(x)

f(x) = sec(x)

f(x) = cot(x)

Mathematical

Sine

Cosine

y = tan(x)

y = cot(x)

y = csc(x)

y = sec(x)
