MA.912.F.1.6

Compare key features of linear and nonlinear functions each represented algebraically, graphically, in tables or written descriptions.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Key features are limited to domain; range; intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive or negative; end behavior and asymptotes. 

Clarification 2: Within the Algebra 1 course, functions other than linear, quadratic or exponential must be represented graphically. 

Clarification 3: Within the Algebra 1 course, instruction includes verifying that a quantity increasing exponentially eventually exceeds a quantity increasing linearly or quadratically.
