After completing this packet you will be able to:
*sketch a graph of a function in which y varies inversely as x.
*draw your sketch by hand without using a graphing calculator.
*draw both branches of the hyperbola.
*identify the vertical and horizontal asymptotes of the function.
*identify the domain and range of an inverse variation function
The packet contains instructional videos about inverse variation graphing, including two example problems, as well as a slide show of relevent vocabulary. The packet also includes a set of helpful hints to get you through inverse variation graphing problems.
