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.

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.

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.

Tables, functions, and stories with real-life scenarios are used in this cooperative learning worksheet. Young algebra engineers are catapulted into the activity "Flying T-Shirts' to sore higher in their understanding of a function. When they land they are able to model a situation using function notation, evaluate function values given domain inputs, interpret the meaning of a function value in context, and leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Skills for Functions and Function Notations
Young scholars differentiate between function and relation by analyzing graphs and data to determine if the pair of coordinates are a function or not. They rewrite functions using the correct notations. This lesson is broken down into timed segments which makes for easy planning.

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.

Advanced Algebra Nomograph
Students explore functions with nomographs on their TI-nspire calculators. In this function notation lesson, students find the function rule on three problems. They drag the point to observe a disappearing arrow, and tell why this happens. Students solve two compound and three inverse function problems.

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.

Interpreting the graph
The purpose of this exercise is to give practice in reading information about a function from its graph. Learners are given graphs of two functions on the same axes. The task is to locate and label various key points on the graph that are identified using function notation.
