What Are Domain and Range?

What do drones have to do with domain and range? In this module, students learn about an emerging high-tech delivery system and use that as a vehicle for learning about a function's domain and range. Students will graph data from a table and explore domain and range, and then they graph a continuous function. This highly engaging module will give students a solid understanding of algebraic functions, specifically domain and range.

In this module students will learn the following concepts:

  • Finding the domain and range for a set of coordinates that define a function
  • Finding the domain and range of a continuous function that doesn’t extend to infinity
  • Finding the domain and range of a continuous function that extends to infinity
