Michael,
 
I think you meant to say
 
f(-x) = f(x) is symmetrical to the y axis and is an even function; example f(x) = x^2
 
f(-x) = -f(x) is symmetrical to the origin and is an odd function; example f(x) = x^3

Thank you, Arturo for pointing out my error. I have edited my post, to make it correct.

But I just noticed the minus sign in front of f(x) is still missing in the odd function case.
