Graphs of Power Functions
This activity consists of three exercises in which learners sketch the graphs of various power functions on the same axes. They use their sketches to make comparisons and observations which lead to generalizations about the graphs of power functions.

Powers and Roots as Inverses-ID: 9826
Texas Instruments has composed yet another lesson to get your class using the TI-Inspire calculator to solve power and root functions. They find similarities and differences in the graphs of even and odd power and root functions then group them as families of functions.

Comparing Exponential and Power Functions
High schoolers compare and contrast exponential and power functions. In this precalculus lesson, students identify the value of x, using the graph as a visual. They compare functions with base of greater than one, to base of less than one.

Power Function Inverses
Pupils graph polynomial functions and analyze the graphs. They identify the inverse of the functions and find the domain and range. Learners will then label the functions as one to one and use the horizontal and vertical line test to verify functions.

Get Connected with Ohm's Law
Ideal for your electricity unit, especially with middle schoolers, this lesson gets engineers using multimeters in electrical circuits to explore the relationships among voltage, current, and resistance. Older learners may even plot data on graphs to see the E-I curves.
