Students explore the concept of piecewise functions. In this piecewise functions lesson, students graph piecewise functions by hand and find the domain and range. Students make tables of values given a piecewise function. Students write piecewise functions given a graph.
A hands-on lesson using the TI-CBR Motion Detector to provide information to graph and analyze. The class uses this information to calculate the slope of motion graphs and differentiate scalar and vector quantities. There is a real-world activity of a Roof Manufacturer's Test in regards to the pitch of roofs, as well as several other real-world scenarios.
Learners explore the concept of piecewise functions. In this piecewise functions lesson, students discuss how to make a piecewise function continuous and differentiable. Learners use their Ti-89 to find the limit of the function as it approaches a given x value. Students find the derivative of piecewise functions.
Graph piecewise functions as your learners work to identify the different values that will make a piecewise function a true statement. They identify function notations and graph basic polynomial functions. This lesson plan includes a series of critical thinking questions and vocabulary.
