An Abundance of Fanciful Functions


Definition: We discussed rational functions, absolute value functions, piecewise defined functions, exponential functions with base e and the natural logarithm. 



Mr. Lee's Example Photo

I saw this building while I was at the cross country provincial championship meet.  I thought the roof would make a nice piecewise function.  I'm trying to be a bit more precise here with my functions so I loaded the image into the background of a Geometer's Sketchpad file.  Then I played with the functions until I got them to match up with the roofline fairly acurately.
