Symmetry Essential Question: How do you determine the shape and symmetry of the graph by the polynomial equation?

Even, Odd, or Neither Functions
Not to be confused with End behavior To determine End Behavior, we check to see if the leading degree is even or odd With Functions, we are determining symmetry (if the entire function is even, odd, or neither)

Even and Odd Functions (algebraically)
A function is even if f(-x) = f(x) If you plug in x and -x and get the same solution, then it’s even. Also: It is symmetrical over the y-axis. The easiest thing to do is to plug in 1 and -1 (or 2 and -2) if you get the same y, then it’s Even. If you get the opposite y, then it’s Odd. If you get different y’s, then it’s Neither. A function is odd if f(-x) = -f(x) If you plug in x and -x and get opposite solutions, then it’s odd. Also: It is symmetrical over the origin

Y – Axis Symmetry Fold the y-axis
Even Function (x, y)  (-x, y) -5 1 -4 2 -1 3 4 4 11 -1 -4 -2 -3 (x, y)  (-x, y)

Test for an Even Function
A function y = f(x) is even if , for each x in the domain of f. f(-x) = f(x) Symmetry with respect to the y-axis

Symmetry with respect to the origin
(x, y)  (-x, -y) (2, 2)  (-2, -2) (1, -2)  (-1, 2) Odd Function

Test for an Odd Function
A function y = f(x) is odd if , for each x in the domain of f. f(-x) = -f(x) Symmetry with respect to the Origin

Ex. 1 Even, Odd or Neither? Graphically Algebraically EVEN

Ex. 2 Even, Odd or Neither? Graphically Algebraically ODD

Ex. 3 Even, Odd or Neither? Graphically Algebraically EVEN

Ex. 4 Even, Odd or Neither? Graphically Algebraically Neither

Even, Odd or Neither? EVEN ODD
