## Study Notes

Introduction to Functions and Their Representations

• A function is a mathematical relationship where one quantity is determined by another.
• Functions can be used to analyze various aspects of our environment and daily lives, such as populations, financial markets, and the spread of diseases.
• The domain of a function is the set of all allowable inputs, while the range is the set of all possible output values.
• An independent variable represents an arbitrary number in the domain, while a dependent variable represents a number in the range.
• A function can be visualized as a machine that accepts inputs and produces outputs according to a rule.
• The graph of a function consists of input-output pairs plotted as points in the coordinate plane.
• If the domain consists of isolated values, the graph is a scatter plot of individual points.
• If the input variable can vary continuously through an interval of values, the graph is a curve or line.
• The graph of a function can be used to read information, such as the values of the function at specific points.
• Functions can be represented verbally, numerically, visually, or algebraically.
• Different representations of a function can provide additional insight into the function.
• The vertical line test can be used to determine if a graph represents a function.

Introduction to Functions and Piecewise Functions

• Functions are mathematical relationships where each input (X) has one unique output (Y).

• A function passes the vertical line test, meaning that every vertical line intersects the graph at most once.

• Functions can be represented by formulas, tables, or graphs.

• The graph of a function can be determined by the vertical line test, which checks if every vertical line intersects the graph at most once.

• The graph of a circle centered at the origin with a radius of 5 is not a function because it fails the vertical line test.

• The formula for a circle can be solved for Y, resulting in a plus or minus square root, which means it is not a function.

• Piecewise functions are functions that have different formulas depending on the value of X.

• Absolute value is an example of a piecewise function, where the formula changes depending on whether X is positive or negative.

• The absolute value function can be defined as a piecewise function, with different formulas for X greater than or equal to 0 and X less than 0.

• Piecewise functions can be graphed by graphing each piece individually, using the appropriate range for each piece.

• Piecewise functions allow for different behaviors for different values of X, providing more flexibility in representing mathematical relationships.

• Understanding functions and piecewise functions is important in mathematics, as they are fundamental concepts used in various fields of study.Graphing the Function f(x) = x

• The text is discussing the process of graphing the function f(x) = x.

• The function is in slope-intercept form, with a slope of 1 and a y-intercept of 0.

• The graph of f(x) = x crosses the origin (0,0).

• The text mentions that a range is given, so only a portion of the graph will be graphed.

• The term "domain" is introduced, which refers to the x-values for which the function exists.

• The text explains that for this function, the graph exists to the right of the y-axis (x ≥ 0).

• The graph of f(x) = x is represented as a straight line with a positive slope of 1.

• The text suggests erasing the parts of the graph that do not exist based on the given domain.

• The next piece of the graph is discussed, which is f(x) = -x.

• The slope of f(x) = -x is in the opposite direction of f(x) = x, going downwards.

• Since f(x) = -x is a piece of the graph that has already been graphed, it cannot be erased.

• The text ends abruptly, leaving the discussion incomplete.
