function notation
a way to represent equations algebraically that makes it more efficient to recognize the independent and dependent variables.
exponential functions
includes functions of the form f(x) = a*b to the X power. A and B are real numbers,and B is greater than 0 but is not equal to 0.
Linear piecewise functions
includes functions that have an equation that changes for different parts, or pieces, of the domain.
increasing function
when both the independent and dependent variables of a function increase across the entire domain.
absolute maximum
when there is a point on a graph that has a y-coordinate that is greater than the y-coordinates of every other point on the graph.
function family
a group of functions that share certain characteristics.
linear absolute value functions
includes functions of the form f(x) =alx+bl + c, where a,b and c are real numbers.
decreasing functions
when the dependent variable of a function decreases as the independent variable increases across the entire domain.
