Objectives: In this tutorial, we define a piecewise defined function and
discuss the drawing of the graph of a piecewise defined function. In addition,
the evaluation of a piecewise defined function is illustrated. After working
through these materials, the student should be able
- to draw the graph of a piecewise defined function; and
- to evaluate a piecewise defined function.
Modules:
DEFINITION.
A piecewise defined function is a function
which is defined symbolically using two or more formulas.
