## Common Graphs

We started the process of graphing in the previous chapter.  However, since the main focus of that chapter was functions we didn’t graph all that many equations or functions.  In this chapter we will now look at graphing a wide variety of equations and functions.

Here is a listing of the topics that we’ll be looking at in this chapter.

Lines, Circles and Piecewise Functions  This section is here only to acknowledge that we’ve already talked about graphing these in a previous chapter.

Parabolas  We’ll be graphing parabolas in this section.

Ellipses  In this section we will graph ellipses.

Hyperbolas  Here we will be graphing hyperbolas.

Miscellaneous Functions  In this section we will graph a couple of common functions that don’t really take all that much work to do.  We’ll be looking at the constant function, square root, absolute value and a simple cubic function.

Transformations  We will be looking at shifts and reflections of graphs in this section.  Collectively these are often called transformations.

Symmetry  We will briefly discuss the topic of symmetry in this section.

Rational Functions  In this section we will graph some rational functions.  We will also be taking a look at vertical and horizontal asymptotes.
