Videos, worksheets, games and activities to help PreCalculus students learn about oblique or slant asymptotes of rational functions.
Slant Asymptotes Example 2
Graphing Rational Functions, n > m
There are different characteristics to look for when drawing a rational function graph. With a rational function graph where the degree of the numerator function is greater than the degree of denominator function, we can find an oblique asymptote. When the degree of the numerator is less than or equal to that of the denominator, there are other techniques for drawing a rational function graph.
This video explains how to determine slant asymptotes of rational functions.
Finding Slant Asymptotes of Rational Functions
This video describes when a rational function has a slant asymptote, briefly describe what a slant asymptote is, and then do two examples.
