Algebra 2

If you enjoy fractions and polynomials, then you will love Rational Functions. Rational functions are functions that can be written as a ratio, fraction, or two polynomials. Examine The Graph of a Rational Function and learn how to identify and locate Vertical Asymptotes in Rational Functions. Explore how the Degree on Rational Functions affects vertical and horizontal asymptotes, or if the degree will give the function Slant Asymptote. Practice Solving Rational Equations in the Real World, such as work and rate problems, so you can see how useful Rational Functions are in practice and applied to everyday life.
