Given

Linear function f(x)=mx+b

Exponential function f(x)=a⋅bx

Quadratic function f(x)=ax^{2}+bx+c

Linear Absolute Value Function f(x)=a∣x+b∣+c

To create an equation and sketch a graph that is a function is exponential is continuous is decreasing

Given: characteristics of the function To Create your own function.

To Describe certain characteristics of the function and see if your partner can sketch it.

To sketch your partner’s function based on characteristics provided.Using determination method.

The possible characteristics of the graph has a maximum , continuous, and is a linear absolute value function.

Since, the function must be a linear absolute value function, the equation must be V- shaped.

Since, it is a maximum it must opens downwards.

Since it is continuous, the domain is all real numbers so the graph must be have connected points.

A possible graph is
