Students will be able to:
· Identify the xintercept(s) from a graph.
· Identify the yintercept from a graph.
· Write an xintercept, a, as an ordered pair. (a, 0)
· Write a yintercept, b, as an ordered pair. (0, b)
· Identify the maximum value or minimum value from a graph.
· Describe the max/min of an exponential function as “approaching” a particular value.
· Recognize that linear functions do not have a maximum, nor minimum value.
· Recognize that quadratic and absolute value functions have either a maximum or a minimum value, but not both.
