Calculus Functions: Are You Ready For A Turn-Up?

Sorry - not that type of turn-up...

Similar to the quote "what you put in is what you get out of it",

functions are a way to relate an input and output.

A common way of naming a function in calculus is 'f(x) =...' The most common name is "f", but we can have other names like "g".. or even "q" if we want.

Here we see that..

  • f is the name of the function

  • what goes into the function is put inside parentheses ()

So f(x) shows us the function that is called "f" will have "x" go into it. Then, your job is to understand what the output of the function is and means. We have a fun free function reference chart of all the important #calculus #functions you may need to know!

We had the best experience!! I loved the model that was used for my son, it really worked for him. He was always very excited for tutoring on Saturdays! The communication was always fantastic and everyone was very professional. I am very thankful for Ms. Sachi and Parker!!! We highly recommend them for anyone needing any tutoring!!

My boys are the typical middle school students - they are free-spirited, funny, bright kids who struggle to focus in class. The large class sizes are especially hard on my oldest son. Insight really gave them the guidance and confidence they needed to show real progress in school!

I love basketball. I play for my school's Varsity team and we are some of the best in the area. But, I had a hard time balancing sports and school. I want to go to college on a basketball scholarship so I know grades are important. Since working with Insight, my grades in all classes have gone up by at least one grade level.
