Functions and Function Notation


The natural world is full of relationships between quantities that change.  When we see these relationships, it is natural for us to ask “If I know one quantity, can I then determine the other?”  This establishes the idea of an input quantity, or independent variable, and a corresponding output quantity, or dependent variable.  From this we get the notion of a functional relationship in which the output can be determined from the input.
