## Module 1 - Topic 2 - Lesson 5 - Exploring Cubic Functions

**Essential Question(s):**

What characteristics do cubic functions exhibit?

How does context affect functions graphically and algebraically?

**Follow the steps to complete your notes and review the content.**

**STEP 1: Preparation**

__Title__your spiral with the heading above,

__copy__the essential question(s), and draw your border line for the Cornell notes.

**STEP 2: Textbook**

__Answer__the follow questions by using your workbook.

__Read__more than enough to ensure a complete answer to the question.

Following a

__Cornell notes format__, the questions should be written in the left-hand column and with the answers to the right of the question.

Make sure to

__write enough to answer the question__.

__Getting Started__

- How was the volume function V(h) created?
- What do each part of the volume function V(h) represent?

__Activity 5.1__

- How does context affect domain? ... affect range?
- Why do x-intercepts not make sense in the problem situation?
- What is a relative maximum? ... a relative minimum?
- How can you figure out an input when given a specific output for a function?

**STEP 3: Mathia**

__Copy__down diagrams, expressions, and other essential work

__from problems that help illustrate the topic(s) covered__.

- Module 2 - Unit: Graphs of Polynomial Functions

**STEP 4: Self-check**

Perform a self-check after the lesson is completed in class by asking yourself the following question:

*"Can you*

__answer__the essential question(s)__completely__?"- Yes? Awesome job! You took
__effective notes__, and__paid attention__. You are on your way to success! :D - No? Ok. We all have struggles.
__Determine__why you said no, r__evise__your notes and self-check again.__Do not get discouraged__.
