Section 9A Functions: The Building Blocks of Mathematical Models Pages 532-539

A function describes how a dependent variable (output) changes with respect to one or more independent variables (inputs). We summarize the input/output pair as an ordered pair with the independent variable always listed first: (independent variable, dependent variable) (input, output) (x, y) 9-A Functions (page 533)

A function describes how a dependent variable (output) changes with respect to one or more independent variables (inputs). 9-A input (x) output (y) function RANGE page 536 DOMAIN page 536

Functions A function describes how a dependent variable (output) changes with respect to one or more independent variables (inputs). (time, temperature) (altitude, pressure) (growth rate, population) (interest rate, monthly mortgage payment) (relative energy, magnitude (of earthquake)) 9-A

Functions We say that the dependent variable is a function of the independent variable. If x is the independent variable and y is the dependent variable, we write the function as 9-A

EXAMPLE: In Powertown, the initial population is 10,000 and growing at a rate of 5% per year. formula: P = 10,000(1.05) t The population(P) varies with respect to time(t). P = f(t) f(t) = 10,000(1.05) t INPUT: year (time) OUTPUT: population year population 10,000(1.05) t f(t) P t

Domain and Range  The domain of a function is the set of values that both make sense and are of interest for the input (independent) variable.  The range of a function consists of the values of the output (dependent) variable that correspond to the values in the domain. 9-A
