### UNIT #2 TEST

Date:

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2018

Learning Targets:

¨ Identify the vertical and horizontal asymptotes, domain and range, intercepts, positive/negative intervals and increasing/decreasing intervals from the graphs of rational functions that are reciprocals of linear and quadratics functions

¨ Make connections between the algebraic and graphical representations of rational functions that are reciprocals of linear and quadratic functions

¨ Identify the vertical and horizontal asymptotes, domain and range, intercepts, positive/negative intervals and increasing/decreasing intervals from the graphs of rational functions that have linear expressions in the numerator and denominator (ie:

¨ Sketch the graph of a simple rational function given the equation

¨ Make connections between the real roots of a rational equation and the x-intercepts of a rational function

¨ Solve simple rational equations in one variable algebraically

¨ Solve problems involving the application of simple rational functions and equations

¨ Understand the difference between the solution to an rational equation and a rational inequality
