Unit 8-1 Radical Functions Agenda
  1. Finding the Domain of a Radical Function
  2. Three Unique Points in a Rational Function
    • Zeros - where only the numerator is zero

Unit 8-3 Radical Function Extremes Agenda
  1. The Chain Rule
    • Inside-Outside Version
    • Differential Version
  2. Using the Sign Pattern of the Derivative to Find the Critical Points and Extreme Values

Unit 8-4 Radical Curve Sketching Agenda
  1. Traits of a Radical Function
    • Domain
    • x and y intercepts
    • Extreme Points
    • Range
