Algebra 1

Functions and Relations

A function is a special mathematical relationship. The lessons in this unit investigate what it means to be a function as well as the notation used to describe functions. The activities include finding graphical and symbolic descriptions of the domain and range for a set of functions and studying transformations of functions.
