Middle School Lessons

  1. Who Shares My Function? - Linear with All Representations - Students will work in groups after finding other students who have the same linear function represented by a story, a table, a graph, or an equation. They will attempt to explain and discuss why the different representations refer to the same function.
  1. Box of Clay Activity - Students will compare two cubic functions based on the context of the volumes of a box of clay.
  2. Can We Predict Differences? - Students will predict, produce, and compare linear and non-linear function graphs used to represent the number of punches on a balloon.
  3. Candy Experiment - Students will create their own data to construct a graph and equation of negative and fractional slope.
  4. Jason's Tree House - Students will extract data from a story and use tables and graphs to answers questions about proposed scenarios.
  5. Playground Construction - Students will create a quadratic equation based on the context of building a playground referring to surface, fencing, and equipment needed, to create an equation of y = ax2 + bx + c form.
  6. Race Car Activity - Students will look at four different graphs to determine which two describe the scenario proposed by the teacher displaying parallel lines and the correct y-intercepts.
  7. Sound Loudness - Students will examine a non-linear function depicted in a graph and generate the corresponding function table and equation.
  8. Who Shares My Function? - Linear with Graphs and Stories - Students will make groups by finding other students who have the same quadratic or linear function in different representations.
