Lab Overview:

**Match the 8 function graph cards to the cards that give the
**

corresponding equation, limit information, and description. Then, answer

a set of questions based on your matching.

Directions:

Work in groups of 2-4.

No graphing calculator or computer may be used.

Complete the matching and record your answers on the lab sheet.

Answer the question(s) about each set of cards.

**Caution: Although the limit and description cards may apply to more
**

than one of the functions, there is only one way to match the cards so

that each set has all 4 components.

DESCRIPTION OF FUNCTION

25. 26.

This function has a y-intercept This is an odd function with two

at -.25 and three asymptotes. non-removable discontinuities:

one at x=-3 and one at x=3.

27. 28.

This function has a non- This function has symmetry with

removable discontinuity at respect to the y-axis.

x=0 and f (x) = f ( – x) . It is continuous on ( – , ).

Its range is { y : y < 1 }.

29. 30.

This function has two non- For every ( x, y ) on the graph of

removable discontinuities: f (x) , ( -x, -y ) is on the graph.

one at x = -3 and one at x = 3. This function has one non-

removable discontinuity.

31. 32.

This function is: The domain of this function is

concave down on ( –, 2) ( – , -2 ) U ( 2, ).

and concave up on ( 2, ) . The range of this function is

{y: y > 1 }.
