Exploring the Witch of Agnesi

high schoolers construct the graph of the Witch of Agnesi, and investigate both its asymptotes and inflection points. They construct the graph of the Witch of Agnesi and conjecture the asymptotes and inflection points of the function. Students algebraically derive the equation of the function using similar triangles and then formally compute the asymptotes and inflection points of the function.
