Algebra 1 Function Introduction STUDY GUIDE
SOLs: A.7, A.4
Know how to…
 Plot points on a Cartesian coordinate plane.

Find the (x, y) coordinates of points on the Cartesian plane.

Identify the quadrant in which a point is located.

Given a relation in different formats (such as a set of (x, y) pairs, mapping diagram, or
graph), determine whether the relation is a function. Be able to explain why you made
your choice. Remember: a relation is a function if every input has one and only one
(OAOO) output.

Given a relation with a discrete domain, be able to find the range of the relation.

Given a graph of a relation, be able to describe the domain and range in set builder
notation.

Be able to graph linear equations using the table of values method and the intercept
method. Be prepared to write the x- and y-intercepts in (x, y) pair form.

Be able to evaluate functions that use f(x) function notation. Remember: x is the input
to the function, and f(x) is the output.

Be able to identify the zero of a linear function, which is the same as its x-intercept.
Find it by setting the function’s output to 0, and solving for x (find x where f(x) = 0).

Be able to put a linear equation into function form (solve for y).

Be able to solve formulas for a given variable.

Be able to use formulas created by solving for a variable in word problems.
