Students learn about plotting reciprocal functions using a table of results and choosing suitable axes. The concepts of an asymptote and exponential growths are explored.
As learning progresses students use a reciprocal graph to model a real world scenerio and predict unknown values.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to complete a table of results for a reciprocal function.
- Most students should be able to plot the graph of a reciprocal function in all four quadrants.
- Some students should be able to model a real life reciprocal function graphically.
