# Plotting Reciprocal Functions

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.
