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. Constant Function: y = 3. Linear Function. Quadratic function:. Cubic:.
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!
A function such that a base value is raised to a variable power.
y = 2x
y = (1/2)x
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)
y = cot(x)
y = sec(x)
