Just in time for back-to-school: New distance learning resources are available on Wide Open School.
Mathalicious' Functions module includes a set of lessons addressing a number of Common Core standards using real-world problems. Lessons are organized into three sections. The Plan section helps teachers prepare and includes objectives, suggested prerequisite skills, Common Core alignments, and printable resources. In the Teach section, there's a preview activity and a set of problems. In the Reflect section, users can post and read comments. Three domains are addressed: Building Functions, Interpreting Functions, and Linear, Quadratic, & Exponential Models -- there's particularly thorough coverage for standards F.BF.1, IF.7, and LE.2
The lesson preview activities are great for small-group work before a more formal classroom lesson. After discussing the preview activity as a class, have your students complete the problems in small groups. Follow with a whole-class discussion to address any remaining questions or ideas. The extension activities could also make great project-based learning opportunities.Continue reading Show less
Key Standards Supported
Write a function that describes a relationship between two quantities.
Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.
Linear, Quadratic, And Exponential Models
Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).
