Title: I'm Walking Through Functions
Description:
The students will participate in a gallery walk of functions with their group. The students will identify the graphs and list the key features of the graphs. The graphs will include square root, cube root, piecewise, step, and absolute value functions. The key features could include the x and y intercepts, domain and range, symmetry, and end behavior.
This is a College and CareerReady Standards showcase lesson plan.
Standard(s): [MA2013] PRE (912) 18: Graph functions expressed symbolically, and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.* [FIF7]
Subject: Mathematics (9  12)

Title: How Do Functions Behave?
Description:
In this lesson, students will conduct a collaborative investigation to independently discover the leading term test for end behavior. They will work with their classmates to discover the principles governing the end behavior of polynomials. They will present their findings concerning end behavior and will be asked to justify their conclusions. Students will create an Educreations video to present and record their findings.

Title: Logarithmic and Exponential Functions TV
Description:
This website has different videos explaining how to graph logarithmic and exponential functions.
Standard(s): [MA2013] AL1 (912) 23: Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.* [AREI11] [MA2013] AL2 (912) 27: Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.* [AREI11] [MA2013] AL2 (912) 30: Graph functions expressed symbolically, and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.* [FIF7] [MA2013] ALT (912) 27: Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations.

Title: Quick Graph
Description:
Quick Graph is a powerful, high quality, graphic calculator that has capabilities to display results in 2D or 3D. It is capable of displaying explicit and implicit (opt) equations as well as inequalities (opt) in all standard coordinate systems: Cartiesian plane, polar, spherical and cylindrical, all with amazing speed and results, which can be copied, emailed, or saved to the photo library.
Standard(s): [MA2013] PRE (912) 1: (+) Represent complex numbers on the complex plane in rectangular and polar form (including real and imaginary numbers), and explain why the rectangular and polar forms of a given complex number represent the same number. [NCN4] [MA2013] PRE (912) 15: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama) [MA2013] AL2 (912) 7: (+) Use matrices to represent and manipulate data, e.g., to represent payoffs or incidence relationships in a network. (Use technology to approximate roots.) [NVM6] (Alabama) [MA2013] ALT (912) 28: Create graphs of conic sections, including parabolas, hyperbolas, ellipses, circles, and degenerate conics, from seconddegree equations. (Alabama) [MA2013] PRE (912) 18: Graph functions expressed symbolically, and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.* [FIF7]
