is where the picture exists from left to right; domain is a description of ALL
the xcoordinates used on the picture. Think of the entire picture as casting a shadow on the xaxis, and describe all the x values that are covered. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Domain


is where the picture exists from bottom to top; range is a description of ALL
the ycoordinates used on the picture. Think of the entire picture as casting a shadow on the yaxis, and describe all the y values that are covered. Using interval notation, describe by the ycoordinates, bottom to top. RANGE is the ONLY description we use the ycoordinates to describe because range is a description of all the y values you see. 
Range


is where the picture is going UP from left to right. As you read from left
to right (for bigger and bigger x’s), the yvalues are also getting bigger. The slope connecting any two points on an increasing portion of the graph is positive. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right 
Increasing


is where the picture is going DOWN from left to right. As you read from
left to right (for bigger and bigger x’s), the yvalues are getting smaller. The slope connecting any two points on a decreasing portion of the graph is negative. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Decreasing


is where the picture is FLAT or HORIZONTAL from left to right. As you
read from left to right (for bigger and bigger x’s), the yvalues stay the same (are constant). The slope connecting any two points on a constant portion of the graph is 0. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Constant


is where the picture is strictly above the xaxis, where all the yvalues are
positive. Any xintercept number is a boundary number and should NOT be included. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Positive


is where the picture is strictly below the xaxis, where all the yvalues are
negative. Any xintercept number is a boundary number and should NOT be included. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Negative


is where the picture is bending up from left to right (looks “like a cup”).
The slopes connecting consecutive points on a concave up portion of the graph will be getting bigger. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Concave Up


is where the picture is bending down from left to right (looks “like a
frown”). The slopes connecting consecutive points on a concave down portion of the graph will be getting smaller. Using interval notation, describe by the xcoordinates, left to right. 
Concave Down:


are where the graph crosses the xaxis. All XI have a ycoordinate of 0.

xintercepts


are where the graph crosses the yaxis. All YI have a xcoordinate of 0.

yintercepts


the absolute lowest point on the graph

Minimum


the absolute highest point on the graph.

Maximum


the ycoordinate for the point in question

minimum / maximum VALUE:


the xcoordinate
of the point in question 
for what x does the function reach its minimum / maximum value
