Variables and Functions: English Learners
In this function table ELL instructional activity, 7th graders review the terms pattern, relate, relationship, rule, and table. Students then find patterns for each triangle shape and draw in the missing triangles in shape 6. Students then complete the function table by writing the shape number in the first column and the number of triangles in the second. Students finish by writing an equation that describes the function for shape number and triangles.
