What defines a function?
In a function, each x-value must be mapped to only one y-value.
What is a variable?
Any letter used to represent a number or set of numbers
What is the domain?
The first numbers of the ordered pairs in a set; all the x-values in a line
What is the range?
The second numbers of the ordered pair in a set; all the y-values in a line.
In a graph, what is the vertical axis called?
The y-axis
In a graph, what is the horizontal axis called?
The x-axis
What is the independent variable?
The variable in a function with a value that is subject to choice; usually graphed on x-axis.
What is the dependent variable?
The variable in a relation with a value that depends on the value of the independent variable; usually graphed on the y-axis.
What is the range of the function shown below?

{(2,3), (-1,5), (3,1), (1,0)}
The range is the set of y-values:

{0,1,3, 5}
What is the domain of the function shown below?

{(2,3), (-1,5), (3,1), (1,0)}

When looking at a graph, how do you determine whether a relation is a function?
Use the vertical line test.
If a vertical line can be drawn so that it crosses the graph in more than one point, then the graph is NOT a function.
