Big Idea:Students learn best when they can build their own meaning around content. In this lesson, the students will have a chance to play with numbers while using order of operations to evaluate expressions.
Big Idea:Manipulatives help students build a foundation for understanding abstract concepts. This lesson allows students to use manipulatives to gain a concrete understanding of the concept of a function.
Big Idea:Real life examples make it easier to understand the application of the concept of function. This lesson allows students to determine domain and range based on feasible inputs and outputs for a function.
Big Idea:Students will construct a step function by analyzing salaries that increase at certain intervals. Students will transfer this understanding to constructing piecewise functions that are defined on specific domains.
