Background Tutorials

Evaluate functions, expressed in function notation, given one or more elements in their domains

Looking at an equation with a variable in the exponent? You have an exponential function! Learn about exponential functions in this tutorial.

Determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, ax + by = c, and y - y1 = m(x - x1)

You can't go through algebra without learning about functions. This tutorial shows you a great approach to thinking about functions! Learn the definition of a function and see the different ways functions can be represented. Take a look!

Graph the functions f(x)=√x, f(x)=1/x, f(x)=x3, f(x)= 3√x, f(x)=bx, f(x)=|x|, and f(x)=logb (x) where b is 2, 10, and e, and, when applicable, analyze the key attributes such as domain, range, intercepts, symmetries, asymptotic behavior, and maximum and minimum given an interval

The natural base exponential function is actually a function that's shorter than its name! This tutorial introduces you to this special function and shows you what it looks like.
