Lesson 4-1: Graphing Rational Functions


Objective:

The student will be able to graph rational functions with attention to end behavior and asymptotes.

Move the k slider to determine how it changes the graph.

  1. What happens to the graph when k is changed? When it is zero?

  2. Use the pull-down menu to select another function.

  3. Click on the "Load Example" button to graph the new function.
