Terms in this set (38)
absolute value function
a function written in the form y = /x/, and the graph is always in the shape of a v
axis of symmetry
A line that divides a plane figure or a graph into two congruent reflected halves
A line or curve that separates the coordinate plane into regions.
constant of variation
the number k in equations of the form y=kx
A measure of the extent to which two factors vary together, and thus of how well either factor predicts the other.
A statistical measure of the extent to which two factors vary together, and thus of how well either factor predicts the other
(statistics) a variable in a logical or mathematical expression whose value depends in the independent variable
an equation of the form y=kx, where k does not equal 0
the x values in all the coordinates of a function
1. A relationship from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) that assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range.
an equation in the form of 'f(x)=' to show the output value of a function, f, for an input value x
an equation that describes a function
the region of the graph of an inequality on one side of a boundary
(statistics) a variable whose values are independent of changes in the values of other variables
line of best fit
a line drawn in a scatter plot to fit most of the dots and shows the relationship between the two sets of data
a function in which the graph of the solutions forms a line
An equation that has no operations other than addition, subtraction, and multiplication of a variable by a constant.
An inequality in two variables whose graph is a region of the coordinate plane that is bounded by a line.
lines in the same plane that never intersect
the most basic function of a family of functions, or the original function before a transformation is applied
Lines that intersect to form right angles.
An equation of the line that passes through the point (X,Y) and has a slope m, y-y=m(x-x)
All of the output or y values in a function
A transformation that "flips" a figure over a mirror or reflection line.
An association between two or more variables. If one of the variables changes, the other variable may also change, and the change may be predictable.
A graphed cluster of dots, each of which represents the values of two variables. The slope of the points suggests the direction of the relationship between the two variables. The amount of scatter suggests the strength of the correlation
A measure of the steepness of a line. Given two points with coordinates (X1,Y1) and (x2,y2) on a line the slope, m, of the line is given m = rise/run= y2-y1/x2-x1
a linear equation written in the form y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept of the equation's graph
standard from of a linear equation
Ax+By=C where A and B are not both zero
A point that you pick on one side of the boundary of the graph of a linear inequality. If the test point makes the inequality true, then all points on that side of the boundary are solutions of the inequality. If the test point makes the inequality false, then all points on the other side are solutions.
a function that changes the position or direction of the axes of a coordinate system
A transformation that "slides" each point of a figure the same distance in the same direction.
A point where three or more edges meet.
Reduces all y-values of a function by the same factor between 0 and 1
multiplies all y-values of a function by the same factor greater than 1.
A test used to determine whether a relation is a function by checking if a vertical line touches 2 or more points on the graph of a relation
x coordinate of a point where a graph crosses the x axis/ y coordinate of this point is zero
The point where the graph crosses the y-axis. In a linear equation of the form y=mx+b. the y-intercept is the constant b.
