Algebra Through Calculus: Domain and Range of Functions

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Content Knowledge
Speakers: Corey Boby, Kim Thomas

In the second session of our “Algebra through Calculus” series, presenters will discuss domain and range of functions.

Students begin to work with domains and ranges in algebra and continue this through their high school courses. In this webinar, AP® Calculus Readers will discuss these concepts throughout the vertical alignment of high school courses. They will highlight expectations across the grade levels, building a conceptual foundation in preparation for AP® Calculus.

Ultimately, on the AP® Calculus exam, students are expected to know the domains of polynomial, rational, power, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions. For example, students should consider domain restrictions whenever they work with the analysis of functions using the first and second derivative. Continuity and differentiability are also topics that rely heavily on the domain of a function. Students should also be able to work with domain restrictions when working with differential equations.

The presenters will utilize both TI-84 Plus CE and TI-Nspire™ graphing calculators during the webinar.
