Two Scavenger Hunt Activities that represent a wonderful practice of the standard 8.FA.2 - Function (rate of change, initial value) in the context of word problems

Instructions

1) Cut out all cards and post them around your classroom (order is not important).

Each student needs both pages of the recording sheet.

2)  Students work in pairs or independently and begin with any card.

3)  Each card has a problem to solve. Each problem asks to determining the rate of change or the y-intercept (initial value) of a function based on a story problem. The solution in the top right corner is the solution to another card. Students write the card number on their recording sheet

and then solve the problem.

4)  They then need to find the card that has the solution to the problem they just solved in the top right corner. They write the number of this new card in the next box on their sheet and continue.

5) The goal is to get all 10 cards in the correct order.

Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.
