This five day plan gives students an insight to the family of functions. It lets them explore the different functions and helps them be able to tell from tables, graphs and equations what kind of function it is. It also has a day where students are exploring the use of TI-84 calculators so they will know how to use them as you move more in depth into the Family of Functions.See More

When it comes time to reviewing for a test, I have found that doing a walk-a-round activity is very helpful. I take their review and create a PowerPoint with each question on a slide. On the bottom right corner of the slide, I put the answer to one of the other questions. Students can work in pairs or on their own to work out the problems. I put the different slides around my room or we use the end hallway that has no classes in it. Students start at different slides and work out the problems. They then look to find the answer and then do that problem until they get back to their original question. Students like this because they are out of their seats and working with a partner. They seem to do more "studying" also and are more prepared to take the test. See More

I took a lesson started by Claudia Heinrich and modified it a little to fit my classroom. I really liked her student sheet and decided to use it. Thanks Claudia. I decided to use different types of paper and have the students compare their data. See More
