    Not to be condescending, but come on, you can at least start by searching for this sort of stuff! Assuming the function generator isn't too old, you can probably even find a user manual at the manufacturer's website (Tektronix? Fluke? Agilent?)

    If nothing, your TA will probably demonstrate its use sometime in the near to longer-term future. They'll probably also demonstrate the use of the oscilloscope (if they haven't already).

    Please get in the habit of doing some work on your own before asking a forum for help. That's good advice in general, in the working world...
