Exploring Rational Functions

Yet another idea I've stolen completely from Kate Nowak.  The unit we're currently working on in College Algebra is on polynomial and rational functions.  I get one day to cover rational functions.

One day to cover possibly the most fun word in all of algebra:  asymptotes.

Let's face it--the day our math teachers condoned the word ass was a good day for all of us.

Anyway, here are the lecture notes we discussed together in class.  If you haven't read Kate's post, read it first.  I didn't change much.  I just added a few things that we need to cover for our college-wide cumulative final, such as horizontal and oblique asymptotes.

I was very rebellious with this section and spent an entire day and a half on it.
