Function Notation and Flying T-Shirts
Your young algebra engineers brainstorm a list of machines that are then related to algebra functions to begin their exploration of the mighty invention called function notation. A discussion follows using a box to represent the machine (which is named F) that takes in the raw material and alters it.

Function Notation - Texas Instruments
Using a TI-Nspire calculator, learners will work to better understand function notation and input/output functions. They write equations with a function symbols, identify what makes an equation a function, and graph lines in order to classify them as functions or not.

Using Function Notation I
Show learners that function notation and multiplication notation are not the same. In the example, Katie is given a function, C(x), which is the cost of producing x amount of DVDs. Ask learners if Katie can divide the function notation, C(x), by x when finding the average.

Points on a Graph
Learners practice using their knowledge of how to interpret a function and use function notation. The activity includes two questions. Given an input of a function and its output, the first question asks learners to write the ordered pair. Similarly, the second question asks for a point on the graph of the function but gives the solution and equation of a function.

Vertical and Horizontal Stretches and Compressions
Learners identify the different stretches and compressions of their polynomial equations. They define when a graph will stretch vertically and when will it stretch horizontally. They also calculate when it will compress vertically and horizontally.
