Function The set of values of the independent variable(s) for which a function or relation is defined Domain The set of y-values of a function or relation range A variable in an equation that may have its value freely chosen without considering values of any other variable independent variable A variable that depends on one or more other variables. dependent variable An interval that does not contain its endpoints open intervals An interval that contains its endpoints. closed intervals f(x) in place of 'y' function notation A test use to determine if a relation is a function vertical line test a function with a graph that goes up from left to right. increasing intervals a function with a graph that goes down from left to right. decreasing intervals The highest point in a particular section of a graph relative maximum The lowest point in a particular section of a graph relative minimum extreme value of a function. like minima and maxima or a function. can be relative (local) or absolute extrema A function with a graph that is symmetric with respect to the y-axis even function A function with a graph that is symmetric with respect to the origin odd function transformations where a figure is picked up and moved to another location. translations The number which indicates no quantity, size, or magnitude zeros A transformation in which a geometric figure is reflected across a line, creating a mirror image reflections A transformation in which a figure grows larger dilations A function for which every element of the range of the function corresponds to exactly one element of the domain. one-to-one Combining two functions by substituting one function's formula in place of each x in the other function's formula composition The function obtained by switching the x- and y-variables in a function. inverse function A test use to determine if a function is one-to-one horizontal line test A function that uses different formulas for different parts of its domain. piecewise defined A function with a connected graph continuous function Authorchoruls ID98148 Card SetMrs. McCleary's Advanced Math Vocab DescriptionFor math test 8/26 Updated2011-08-24T00:59:16Z Show Answers
