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
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.
