## Open Up the Math: Launch, Explore, Discuss

In this unit, we started with piecewise functions, connected to absolute value functions, and found inverse functions. In this lesson, we are going to put all this work together by starting with a single function and building the other functions and their representations from the initial function. Think flexibly, and don’t forget to check your work!
