What is an odd function? What is an even function?

For an even function f(x)=f(-x). You are given f(-3), f(-2) and f(-1), so what
are f(3), f(2), f(1)?

Complete the first column using the given information and the definition of an
even function.

For an odd function g(x)=-g(-x). You are given g(-3), g(-2) and g(-1), so
what are g(3), g(2), g(1)?

Complete the second column using the given information and the definition of
an even function.
