UNIT VIII: Rational Functions

- eTools
- 1 Adding Rational Expressions

This applet allows the user to work through rational operations. Graphing Calculator - 2 Asymptotes and Zeros

Students relate the graph of a rational function to the graphs of the polynomial functions of its numerator and denominator. Students graph these polynomials one at a time and identify their y-intercepts and zeros. Using the handheld's manual manipulation functions, students can manipulate the graphs of the numerator and denominator functions and see the effect on the rational function. - 3 Graphing Rational Functions on Calculator
