About this Workbook Mathematics instructors at Scottsdale Community College in Scottsdale, Arizona created this workbook. The included content is designed to lead students through Intermediate Algebra, from a functions modeling approach, and to develop a deep understanding of the concepts associated with functions, data and change. The included curriculum is broken into twelve lessons. Each lesson includes the following components: MINI-LESSON

The Mini-Lesson is the main instructional component for each lesson. Ideas are introduced with practical applications. Worked Examples are provided for each topic in the Mini-Lesson. Read through these examples carefully. Use these as a guide for completing similar problems. Media Examples can be worked by watching online videos and taking notes/writing down the problem as written by the instructor. Video links can be found at http://sccmath.wordpress.com or may be located within the MathAS Online Homework Assessment System. You-Try problems help reinforce Lesson concepts and should be worked in the order they appear showing as much work as possible. Answers can be checked in Appendix A.

PRACTICE PROBLEMS

This section follows the Mini-Lesson. If you are working through this material on your own, the recommendation is to work all practice problems. If you are using this material as part of a formal class, your instructor will provide guidance on which problems to complete. Your instructor will also provide information on accessing answers/solutions for these problems.

LESSON ASSESSMENT

The last part of each Lesson is a short assessment. If you are working through this material on your own, use these assessments to test your understanding of the lesson concepts. Take the assessments without the use of the book or your notes and then check your answers. If you are using this material as part of a formal class, your instructor will provide instructions for completing these problems and for obtaining solutions to the practice problems.

Lesson 1 – Introduction to Functions Throughout this class, we will be looking at various Algebraic Functions and the characteristics of each. Before we begin, we need to review the concept of what a Function is and look at the rules that a Function must follow. We also need to investigate the different ways that we can represent a Function. It is important that we go beyond simple manipulation and evaluation of these Functions by examining their characteristics analyzing their behavior. Looking at the Functions modeled as Graphs, Tables and Sets of Ordered Pairs is critical to accomplishing that goal.

Mini-Lesson 1 Section 1.1 – What is a Function? Intermediate Algebra is a study of functions and their characteristics. In this class, we will study LINEAR, EXPONENTIAL, LOGARITHMIC, QUADRATIC, RATIONAL, & RADICAL functions. Before we learn the specifics of these functions, we need to review/learn the language and notation of FUNCTIONS. What is a Function? The concept of “function” is one that is very important in mathematics. The use of this term is very specific and describes a particular relationship between two quantities: an input quantity and an output quantity. Specifically, a relationship between two quantities can be defined as function if it is the case that “each input value is associated with only one output value”. Why Do We Care About Functions? Imagine that you are a nurse working the emergency room of a hospital. A very sick person arrives. You know just the medicine needed but you are unsure the exact dose. First, you determine the patient’s weight (200 pounds). Then you look at the table to the right and see the given dosage information: Weight in lbs.

mL of Medicine

200

10

200

100

You are immediately confused and very concerned. How much medicine do you give? 10 ml or 100 ml? One amount could be too much and the other not enough. How do you choose the correct amount? What you have here is a situation that does NOT define a function (and would not occur in real life). In this case, for the input value 200 lbs, there are two choices for the output value. If you have a function, you will not have to choose between output values for a given input. In the real case of patients and medicine, the dosage charts are based upon functions.

A More Formal Definition of Function: A FUNCTION is a rule that assigns a single, unique output value to each input value.

MEDIA EXAMPLE – Do The Data Represent A Function?

The table below gives the height H, in feet, of a golf ball t seconds after being hit. t = Time (in seconds) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6

H = Height (in feet) 0 80 128 144 128 80 0

a) Identify the input quantity (include units)._________________________________________ Identify the input variable._________________________________________________ Identify the output quantity (include units).________________________________________ Identify the output variable._________________________________________________

b) Write the data as a set of ordered pairs.

c) Interpret the meaning of the ordered pair (3, 144).

d) Is height of the golf ball a function of time? Why or why not?

e) Is time a function of the height of the golf ball? Why or why not?

Problem 2

Mini-Lesson

WORKED EXAMPLE – Investigating Functional Relationships

Let’s investigate the functional relationship between the two quantities, “numerical grade” and “letter grade”. First, let Numerical Grade be the input quantity and Letter Grade be the output quantity. Below is a sample data set that is representative of the situation. Numerical grade 95 92 85 73

Letter Grade A A B C

The numbers above are made up to work with this situation. Other numbers could be used. We are assuming a standard 90, 80, 70, etc… grading scale. Hopefully you can see from this data that no matter what numerical value we have for input, there is only one resulting letter grade. Notice that the repeated outputs “A” are not a problem since the inputs are different. You can uniquely predict the output for any numerical grade input. So, from this information we can say that Letter Grade (output) is a function of Numerical Grade (input). Now let’s switch the data set above. Letter Grade A A B C

Numerical Grade 95 92 85 73

Can you see there is a problem here? If you say that you have an A in a class, can you predict your numerical grade uniquely? No. There are a whole host of numerical scores that could come from having an A. The same is true for all the other letter grades as well. Therefore, Numerical Grade (output) is NOT a function of Letter Grade (input). Summary:

Letter Grade IS a function of Numerical Grade but Numerical Grade is NOT a function of Letter Grade

Additional Terminology In the language of functions, the phrase INDEPENDENT VARIABLE means input and the phrase DEPENDENT VARIABLE means output. The dependent variable (output) “depends on” or is a “function of” the independent variable (input).

GRAPHS Which of the following represent functional relationships?

THE VERTICAL LINE TEST • If all vertical lines intersect the graph of a relation at only one point, the relation is also a function. One and only one output value exists for each input value. • If any vertical line intersects the graph of a relation at more than one point, the relation “fails” the test and is NOT a function. More than one output value exists for some (or all) input value(s).

Two of the listed input values (1 & 4) are associated with more than one output value.

No vertical line intersects the graph in more than one point. We say the graph PASSES the VERTICAL LINE TEST.

Vertical lines intersect the graph at more than one point meaning inputs are repeated with different outputs. We say that the graph FAILS the VERTICAL LINE TEST.

Section 1.3 – Function Notation FUNCTION NOTATION is used to indicate a functional relationship between two quantities as follows: Function Name (INPUT) = OUTPUT So, the statement f (x) = y would refer to the function f , and correspond to the ordered pair (x,y), where x is the input variable, and y is the output variable.

Function Evaluation: To evaluate a function at a particular value of the input variable, replace each occurrence of the input variable with the given value and compute the result. Note: Use of ( ) around your input value, especially if the input is negative, can help achieve correct results.

Problem 9

MEDIA EXAMPLE – Function Evaluation

Given f (x) = 2x – 5, evaluate f (2), f (–1), f (x + 1) and f (–x).

Page 18

Problem 10

Mini-Lesson

WORKED EXAMPLE – Function Evaluation

If f (x) = 5x2 – 3x – 10, find f (2) and f (–1). f (2) = 5(2)2 – 3(2) – 10 = 5(4) – 6 – 10 = 20 – 6 – 10 = 14 – 10 =4

f (–1) = 5(–1)2 – 3(–1) – 10 = 5(1) + 3 – 10 = 5 + 3 – 10 = 8 – 10 = –2

When working with FUNCTIONS, there are two main questions we will ask and solve as follows: Given a particular INPUT value, what is the corresponding OUTPUT value? Given a particular OUTPUT value, what is the corresponding INPUT value? Problem 11

Section 1.5 – Applications of Functions Criteria for a GOOD GRAPH: 1. The horizontal axis should be properly labeled with the name and units of the input quantity. 2. The vertical axis should be properly labeled with the name and units of the output quantity. 3. Use an appropriate scale. Start at or just below the lowest value. End at or just above the highest value. Scale the graph so the adjacent tick marks are equal distance apart. Use numbers that make sense for the given data set. The axes meet at (0,0) Use a “//” between the origin and the first tick mark if the scale does not begin at 0. 4. All points should be plotted correctly, and the graph should be neat and uncluttered.

Mini-Lesson

WORKED EXAMPLE – Practical Domain and Range

Let the function M(t) = 15t represent the distance you would travel bicycling t hours. Assume you can bike no more than 10 hours. Find the practical domain and practical range for this function.

BEGIN by drawing an accurate graph of the situation. Try and determine the smallest and largest input values then do the same thing for the output values.

PRACTICAL DOMAIN In this situation, the input values you can use are related to biking and the input is TIME. You are told you can bike no more than 10 hours. You also cannot bike a negative number of hours but you CAN bike 0 hours.

PRACTICAL RANGE In this situation, the outputs represent distances traveled depending on how long you bike. Looking at the endpoints for Practical Domain, you can find you Practical Range as follows:

Therefore, the Practical Domain is

M (0) M (t ) M (10)

0 t 10 hours

Thus, 0 M (t ) 150 miles is your Practical Range

This means “all the values of t between and including 0 and 10”.

This means you can bike a minimum of 0 miles and a maximum of 150 miles in this situation.

Section 2.2 – Applications of Function Operations One of the classic applications of function operations is the forming of the Profit function, P(x) by subtracting the cost function, C(x), from the revenue function, R(x) as shown below. Profit = Revenue – Cost Given functions P(x) = Profit,

R(x) = Revenue,

and C(x) = Cost:

𝑃(𝑥) = 𝑅(𝑥) − 𝐶(𝑥) Problem 13

MEDIA EXAMPLE – Cost, Revenue, Profit

10. Maria and Todd are organizing the 20 year reunion for their high school. The high school alumni association has given them $1000 for the event. They talk to the local caterer and find out the following: It will cost $15 per person plus a $50 setup fee to provide food for the event. It will cost $3 per person plus an $80 setup fee to rent the Meeting Hall at the local Holiday Motel. To help determine the costs, they come up with the following functions: The cost for food is $50 + $15 per person. F(x) = 15x + 50 The cost for the Hall is $80 + $3 per person H(x) = 3x + 80 In addition, they decide to charge each person $5 to get in the door. This can be modeled by the following function: Income for the event is $1000 from the alumni + $5 per person. I(x) = 5x + 1000 Given this information, answer the following questions. Show how you use the functions to calculate the answers. And give your final answers in complete sentences. If 400 people attend the event: a) How much will it cost for food?

b) How much will it cost to rent the Meeting Hall?

c) How much will it cost for food AND to rent the Meeting Hall? Show how you use the functions to calculate this. Hint: F(400) + H(400)
