    This lesson explains composition of functions by putting one function into another function. A couple of example cases are shown and explained in depth, and many web resources and a problem set accompany this lesson to help you understand this sometimes confusing concept. All steps involved in this process are explained in detail. A TI graphing calculator is used to solve a composition of functions problem.
