CLEP College Mathematics: Functions

This free online course examines how to calculate special functions and express graphical transformations of functions.

Publisher: ADU
CLEP College Mathematics: Function is a free online course that teaches you graphical transformations. You will be introduced to the notion of transforming graphical figures through translations, reflections, and rotations. Learn how a function is analyzed as a modification of a basic prototype. This course gives a valuable approach to graphing since it provides a deeper understanding of the relationship of equations to their graphs. Register Now

Functions are often described as a machine in a box that is open on two ends. You put something into one end of the box, it gets changed inside of the box, and then the result pops out the other end. The function is the machine inside the box and it is defined by what it does to whatever you put into it. CLEP College Mathematics: Functions is a free online course that will introduce you to special functions as well as polynomial functions. It outlines some examples of polynomial functions. It explains the degree of a Polynomial Function and how to identify those degrees. If each element of a matrix A is a polynomial in x and if |A| vanishes for x = a, then (x - a) is a factor of | A |. In this course, you will learn about two very important theorems that are useful in searching for the roots of polynomial equations. This course differentiates between the remainder theorem and factor theorem.

A relation between two sets is a collection of ordered pairs containing one object from each set. A function is a type of relation. But, a relation needs to have the object x in the first set to be related to more than one object in the second set. In this course, you will learn about the properties of relations and functions. It explains the arithmetic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Learn how to prove that Functions are Inverses. This course explains how to solve constant and identify functions using succinct examples. Learn the difference between constant functions and identity functions. An absolute value function is a function that contains an algebraic expression within absolute value symbols. This course teaches you the Geometric definition of the Absolute Value Function and how to solve absolute values. Learn the difference between linear functions and linear equations.

Finally, the greatest integer function is a function that takes an input and gives an output that is the greatest integer that is less than or equal to the input. This course analyzes how to graph Greater integer functions as well as how to solve Greater integer functions. You will learn about exponential growth and exponential depreciation. It discusses how to plot a graph of quadratic functions as well as other key features of quadratic functions. This course introduces you to graphical transformations. It discusses translation, reflections, and point of rotation as a form of graphical transformation. You will discover the properties preserved in all translations, reflections and rotations. The rotation of isometry will be discussed. This course will be of significant interest to everyone. Ranging from beginners to college students studying mathematics. Register and Get Started Now!
