Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on even and odd functions, the instructor explains how to determine if a graph is even or odd. An even function is symmetrical with the y-axis, while an odd function is not symmetrical about the origin. The instructor shows how to test for symmetry both graphically and algebraically, providing examples and definitions for each.

Lesson Description:

Overview of functions - even and odd

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
