When DetectAsymOff is selected, the calculator will not detect asymptotes, adjusting the graph accordingly. This method of graphing is much faster than with asymptotes turned on. However, the graph can be erroneous when dealing with rational functions, as it will often draw extra lines to connect points near undefined values.

An asymptote is, by definition, "a line that continually approaches a given curve but does not meet it at any finite distance." Basically, an asymptote is the line where a function does not have any values on a certain axis.
