# Interpretation of Tables

## Interpretation of Tables

1. Comparing Different Functions - The students will discuss, represent, and solve a verbal problem involving the choice between two functions.
2. Functions from Tables - Students work with a function, beginning with a table and then a formula, to generate ordered pairs that follow the rule of the function.
3. Guess my Rule - Multiplicative Tables - Two children create secret rules for transforming input numbers. The teacher uses a doubling or tripling rule.
4. Guess my Rule - Tables - Two children create secret rules for transforming input numbers. The teacher uses a doubling rule.
5. N-Number Line I - Students work with the table they built in the previous class for multiple number lines, focusing on the notation for variables (N + 5 - 3 or N + 2).
6. Rules and Formulas - Students are given a rule and a data table supposedly generated according to the rule. Students evaluate whether: (1) the proper rule has been applied and (2) the result is correct.
7. Starting With A Rule - Students focus on whether given outputs are consistent with a given rule.
1. Comparing Functions - This lesson is split into two days. In the first class, the students will analyze eight basic graph shapes and will represent and solve a verbal problem involving the choice between two functions. In the second one they will be asked to choose, among the eight basic graph shapes, the ones that matches specific situations.
2. Consistency - Children choose pairs of numbers that maintain the relationship of 1 to 3 that is given in a statement, and they explain why they believe the relationship is maintained.
3. Evaluation Problem - Students will be given a problem that asks about the amount of money each person has, based on the amount in a piggy bank. They will be given one graph and asked to draw the second graph.
4. The Better Paying Job I - Children work on a problem about rate of pay per hour of work. They compare ratios (dollars earned per hour of work) and discuss and plot points in a Cartesian plane.
5. The Better Paying Job II - Children work on a problem about rate of pay per hour of work. They compare ratios (dollars earned per hour of work) and discuss and plot points in a Cartesian plane.
6. Wallet Problem III - Students will continue working with the wallet problem. They will be shown a graph for Mike's amounts and asked to (a) determine whether it represents Robin's or Mike's money and (b) to predict where the line for Mike would fall. Later they will plot Mike's amounts and will discuss why the lines cross.
