Overview:

In Module 3, Topic C, students extend their understanding of piecewise functions and their graphs including the absolute value and step functions. They learn a graphical approach to circumventing complex algebraic solutions to equations in one variable, seeing them as f(x) = g(x) and recognizing that the intersection of the graphs of f(x) and g(x) are solutions to the original equation (A-REI.D.11). Students use the absolute value function and other piecewise functions to investigate transformations of functions and draw formal conclusions about the effects of a transformation on the function’s graph (F-IF.C.7, F-BF.B.3).
