You have now been introduced to a number of additional function families that may be used to model real-world data. You have also begun to analyze when each function family may be an appropriate choice for a data set. Before proceeding to the next lesson, complete the lesson reflection.

## Algebra II Journal: Reflection 3

Respond to the following reflection questions in your Algebra II Journal and submit to your teacher.

- Cubic Functions
- Quartic Functions
- Power Functions
- Logarithmic Functions
- Logistic Functions
- Trigonometric Functions

For the function family you selected, use your textbook and online searches to develop a deeper understanding of the function family. Summarize your findings and submit to your teacher. Make sure to address the following:

- Determine the key features of this function family. (end behavior, number of possible maximum and minimum values, increasing/decreasing trends, etc.)
- Include sample graphs to represent the variety of functions within this function family.
- Include any possible contextual examples that could be modeled with this function type.
