Today, I did a lecture on the end behavior of rational functions. We used polynomial division to rewrite the rational function, and then figured out what terms would approach 0, leaving us with a lovely end-behavior function.
Students are starting to get overwhelmed - though they know the differences between x-intercepts, y-intercepts, and vertical asymptotes, when called on to figure them all out for a problem, they tend to mix things up. So I need to stop and take a day for review. So, I present:
Another Perplex City inspired creation for tomorrow's lesson. Enjoy!
