For every tick there’s a tock, for every ying there’s a yang and for every input there is an output. Well, this is true if you are a function. What exactly is a function? What does a function look like? Identify Functions of a Graph will not only answer these questions for students, but will also give students the opportunity to explore, identify and interpret functions.
Students will be given numerous opportunities to investigate the concept that rules that take x as an input and y as an output is a function. They will use tables, equations, coordinate points and graphs to represent and identify functions. This activity serves as a great introduction to a function and the many ways they can be identified and represented.
