The goal of this activity is to introduce the definition of function and to highlight that throughout the course we will use multiple representations when talking about functions. We want to expand the students vision of a function from the typical f(x)=3x+7 which is what they tend to be used to. This is a pared down version of an intro to functions activity that we use in Calculus 1 which can be found here https://sites.google.com/site/aibldraftinstructorsite/home/in-class-activities-and-activity-guides/ca-i3-introduction-to-functions. I am using this Desmos activity as a check of understanding after working on the activity below. There are lots of other cool Functions activities on Desmos also. Look on teacher.desmos.com under the Functions link. |
