Intersection of Graphs

Videos and lessons to help High School students explain why the x-coordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y =f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.

Suggested Learning Targets

Explain why the intersection of y = f(x) and y = g(x) is the solution of f(x) = g(x) for any combination of linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions. Find the solution(s) by:
• Using technology to graph the equations and determine their point of intersection.
• Using tables of values.
• Using successive approximations that become closer and closer to the actual value.
