Function Families

Here is a solid lesson for differentiating types of functions: linear, exponential, and quadratic. Mathematicians work in groups to create a table of values for a function that they are given. They graph the assigned function and compare it to others. Finally, each presents their graph to the rest of the class so that the graphs can be placed into families of functions. In order to meet Common Core standards, make sure to draw their attention to the functions that result in linear graphs. Internet links and additional materials are provided to make teaching this concrete lesson a breeze.
