Horizontal asymptote A horizontal line that a function gets closer and closer to, but never intersects
Vertical asymptote A vertical line that a function gets closer and closer to, but never intersects
Basic Function The simplest function of its type
Transformation The mapping, or movement, of all points of a figure in a plane according to a common operation

Interval The set of real numbers between two given numbers
Open interval (a,b) describes the set of all real numbers between a and b, but not including a or b
Closed interval [a,b] describes the set of all real numbers between a and b, including a and h
Half-closed or half-open interval (a,b] describes the set of all numbers between a and b, including b but not including a. [a,b) describes the set of all numbers between a and b, including a but not including b.
