In this course, you will learn strategies that allow you to make sketches of many different types of graphs. However, when the directions tell you to make a complete graph, this means you must do more than make a quick sketch. To make a complete graph, you need to:

  • Use Graph Paper.

  • Scale and label axes.

  • Plot Points Accurately.

  • Label Key Points.

On separate sets of axes, make a complete graph of each of the following functions.

  1. Graph the -intercept first.

    Notice the NEGATIVE slope.

    Decreasing line, passing through the points (0, comma 7), & (3.5, comma 0).

  1. Increasing line, going through the points, (0, comma 1) & (negative 1.6, comma 0).

  1. Solve for before graphing.

    Decreasing line, going through the points,  (0, comma 3) & (2, comma 0).

  1. Try making a table. Remember to use negative numbers.

    An upwards parabola with the vertex at (0, comma 0).
