Functions from the start!

Monday is the day!  I meet my freshmen students on Monday ... and I am excited.

After our first day, we will jump into an introductory unit on functions!  While it can be a challenging concept, it does lend itself well to math lab activities.  I plan to use these two activities during the first week!

In this second activity I used Mr. D's poster project as a guide:  http://www.teachforever.com/2007/10/project-idea-independent-vs-dependent.html.

Excitement is high ... glad there is a buffer day tomorrow ... a day for rest, relaxation, reflection!

  1. The independent/dependent variable activity is pure genius. I'm a sucker for cut & match activities, so perhaps I'm biased. Maybe after students complete it, they could devise their own creative versions?

    Absolutely - they could create their own ... and if you had time in class they could try to stump one another.
