Cubic Functions

Middle School Lessons
  1. Box of Clay Activity - Students will compare two cubic functions based on the context of the volumes of a box of clay.
  2. Curves in a Cubic - Students will explore different kinds of cubic functions through graphs and tables.
  3. Graphing Equations - Nonlinear Functions - Students write equations for three graphs and examine their slopes by comparing and contrasting the graphs. Students also look at the same functions graphed on differently scaled coordinate planes.
  4. What Will Happen - Students will work with equations of functions (both linear and non-linear) to find the y-intercept without graphing.
  5. x2 and x - Students will look at x squared and x as functions, and for which values of x one function value is greater than the other.
