###### Topic Notes
Bring on more grid papers! In this chapter, we're going to study functions. Functions are notations that tell us what the value of y is for every value of x. By carrying out the vertical line test, we are able to find out the relationships of ordered pairs.
Relations: Sets of ordered pairs ( x , y )

Function: For every value of x, there is a value of y. It will need to pass the vertical line test.

One-To-One Function: For every one value of x, there is only one value of y, and vice versa. It will need to pass both vertical and horizontal line test.

Vertical line Test: A vertical line that intersects the graph of the equation only once when moves from across on the x-axis.
