Target 1​

Lesson Type:

Continuation

Algebra

:

Function

Use input and output data to determine a function equation.

Supporting targets:
1:

Understand that a function is a rule that gives one output to each input.

2:

Understand that by studying the proportional relationship between inputs and outputs, a function (equation) can be derived.

3:

Use a function equation to fill out a function table.

Grade:

6th

Vocabulary:

Function, Input, Output, Function Rule

Activities:

  • Reviewed and discussed vocabulary terms and skills learned from the previous week.
  • Studied the input (x) and output (f(x)) values given in a table to determine the function rule.
  • Through sharing and discussion, learned that it is possible to derive various function rules for the same data table.
  • Created their own data tables with accurate values based on a function rule of their choosing, which another student or teacher was asked to derive.

Vocabulary:

Quarter, Half, Thirds, Spatial Reasoning

Activities:

  • Explored with origami paper, folding them in different fractions and directions, then punching a hole while still folded.
  • Discovered and analyzed how the placement of the hole, e.g., when punched near a folded cream versus open edges, changes the overall placement and amount of holes when the paper is unfolded.
  • Given a diagram of steps depicting how a paper is folded and where the hole is punched, students determined where the placement of the holes would be once the paper is opened.
