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.

From Patterns of Input and Output to Algebraic Equations
Watch video clips titled, "Frog Hops Part I" and "Frog Hops Part II," then discuss patterns demonstrated in the videos. Learners will complete an algebraic expressions and equations handout and discuss the answers. They will be able to translate written phrases to expressions and equations and extrapolate input values or solve algebraic relationships with non-consecutive integer values as assessments.

New Review A Sum of Functions
Collaborative learners will see the geometric addition of functions by graphing the sum of two graphed curves on the same coordinate plane. This task then naturally flows into giving learners the algebraic representation of the curves and having them build a table of values at various inputs with outputs of the two functions and their sum.

Worksheet 3.1 Functions
Middle and high schoolers complete and solve 12 various types of problems. First, they express the output as a function of the input in each table. Then, pupils evaluate for the given variable when the value is as stated. In addition, they read the information provided and translate as much as they can into mathematical expressions.

Well Oiled Functions: Enrichment
In this algebraic functions instructional activity, learners write a function to determine the relationship between people and barrels of oil used. They research the population of the 10 largest cities in their state and use this functional relationship to calculate the number of barrels and gallons of oil used by each city.

Introduction to Functions
In this introduction to functions video, Sal gives an intuitive definition of what a function is and introduces the function notion, f(x). He finishes the video by looking at a simple example of evaluating g(f(x)) without getting into much of the complexity of composite functions.

High schoolers are introduced to the techniques associated with interpreting functions. The vocabulary associated with this technique is reviewed, then pupils view a PowerPoint (embedded in the plan), that shows how to interpret functions. Learners then break into four groups and complete the assignments given by the teacher.

Equal Differences Over Equal Intervals 1
Learners explore linear functions concretely using tables of values in a cooperative task. The concept of the values of linear functions changing by equal differences over equal intervals of one is emphasized. Learners will discover the slope and y-intercept in the equations and in the patterns developed in the tables.
