Teach your students how to graph functions without a calculator. Using a basic y=mx+b format, give some x values in a table, have the students calculate the y value, convert to order pairs (O.P.). Finally, they graph their points and voila! A function is born! Also include is basic translation, reflection, and identification of O.P., and values of b, m, and y from a graph.
