4.7 Graphing Special Functions

Standard(s):

  • F.IF.B7: Graph piecewise-defined functions, including step functions and absolute functions.


Essential Question: 

  • How can the relationship between quantities best be represented?


Learning Target:

  • I can define piecewise functions as functions that have different rules for evaluation depending on the value of the input. (Knowledge)
  • I can identify which evaluation rule to use for a specific value of x. (Knowledge)
  • I can represent a piecewise function with a table or graph by evaluating serveral values of x. (Application)
