Piecewise Functions!

Today in class we focused on how to read piecewise functions, graph piecewise functions, and use open and closed circles (like in number lines) to describe the domain of a function.

Please complete Problems 6 and 7 through C tonight for homework on page S98.

Absolute Value – And Linear Functions

Tonight for homework:

1.  Create an absolute value function to match the graph below.  Then create 2 linear functions (restricted with a domain) to match the absolute value function.

HW 11_11

2.  Create the equation for an absolute value function with an global minimum at (1, -2) and a y – intercept of (0, -1)

3.  Challenge Problem:  Can you create the equation for an absolute value function with an global minimum at (1, -2) and a y-intercept of (0,0)?  Is that enough information?  If so, create an equation.  Otherwise, describe what additional information is necessary.
