AII.7f
The student will investigate and analyze functions algebraically and graphically. Key concepts include
f)   end behavior;
Graphing calculators will be used as a tool to assist in investigation of functions.
Essential Knowledge and Skills 
  • Describe the end behavior of a function.
Essential Understandings
  • Functions may be used to model real-world situations.
  • End behavior describes a function as x approaches positive and negative infinity.
