Lesson Summary:

In calculator skill C.6, you will learn how to obtain a usable graph of linear, quadratic, exponential, logistic, logarithmic, or rational functions with the proper combination of window settings and zoom features on your graphing calculator. While this may be a challenging skill to learn, it will become easier with practice and experience. By adjusting your window settings and zoom features, you can ensure that your graph is clear, accurate, and suitable for solving real-world problems. Through this lesson, you will gain an understanding of how to use these tools to graph the four model functions used in this class: linear, quadratic, exponential, and logistic.

Lesson Description:

Obtain a useable graph of linear, quadratic, exponential, logistic, logarithmic, or rational functions with a proper combination of WINDOW settings and ZOOM features on your graphing calculator.
