These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Determine key features of graphs. Maximum and minimum values; intercepts; symmetry; vertex; zeros of functions or roots of equations; vertical and horizontal asymptotes using graphing technology. Finding the point of intersection of two curves or lines using technology.".

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Graph Equation Pairs Match the equation with its graph. Includes quadratics, cubics, reciprocals, exponential and the sine function.
- Graph Match Match the equations with the images of the corresponding graphs. A drag-and-drop activity.
- Graph Patterns Find the equations which will produce the given patterns of graphs.
- Plotting Graphs Complete a table of values then plot the corresponding points to create a graph.

Here are some exam-style questions on this statement:

- "
*Match the equation with the letter of its graph*" ... more - "
*The graph of y = f(x) is drawn accurately on the grid.*" ... more - "
*(a) By completing the square, solve \(x^2+8x+13=0\) giving your answer to three significant figures.*" ... more - "
*Consider the graph of the function \(f(x)=7-3x^2-x^3\)*" ... more - "
*The graph of the following equation is drawn and then reflected in the x-axis*" ... more - "
*(a) Write \(2x^2+8x+27\) in the form \(a(x+b)^2+c\) where \(a\), \(b\), and \(c\) are integers, by 'completing the square'*" ... more - "
*A function is defined as \(f(x) = 2{(x - 3)^2} - 5\) .*" ... more - "
*The diagram shows part of the graph of \(f(x)=Ae^{kx}+2\).*" ... more - "
