Today we will be introducing the functions. We will learn what a function is and how to evaluate a function at given input values. Then, we will learn how to determine if a point is a solution to a given function without graphing the function. We will be using these skills in class tomorrow.

Review of Order of Operations

This is the order in which you should be conducting calculations. Parthesis first, exponents, multiplcation, division, addition, and lastly subtraction. This will help us when we are evaluating functions at given input values.
