Real World Application of Multiple Function Models

Absolutely, you'll want to learn about absolute value functions! An engaging lesson plan challenges young mathematicians to investigate absolute value, piecewise, square root, and cube root functions. After covering those concepts, they consider transformations of the graphs of these functions. As a culminating activity, learners match real-world situations to functions.
