Rational Functions: Vertical and Horizontal Asymptotes
Author

Andy Dorsett
Organization: Wolfram Research, Inc.
Education level

Precollege
Description

Students will determine the domains of rational functions. Students will be able to predict behavior of rational function graphs (including intercepts and asymptotes) before graphing. Students will also show proficiency in recognizing discontinuities and their types. Students will use this information to construct more accurate graphs and perform better analysis on them.
