This test covers functions, tables, and rules, including using a pattern of figures to create a table and find the function rule. The test is divided into the following sections:
Questions 1-4: Students are given incomplete function tables and the function rules (in the form of equations). They are to use the rule to complete the table.
Questions 5-8: Students are given incomplete function tables, without the function rules. They are to write the function rule (as an equation) and use it to complete the table.
Questions 9-11: These are multiple choice questions that require students to read a word problem based on a real life scenario, use a given function table, and answer questions related to the function rules and later terms (i.e. Using the rule, how much will Sarah earn in 10 months?)
Questions 12-14: Students are given a pattern of figures and are required to complete a function table, write the function rule as an equation, and find a later term (nth term).
Questions 15-16: This is a constructed response question. Students read a description of a real life situation and are required to find the function rule, complete a table, and find a later term. However, the function rule will be a "two-step" equation; there will be a constant. Below is the real life situation:
"Josh is trying to earn money for a field trip for his class. Mrs. Johnson agreed to give him a one-time donation of $22. For every touchdown Josh scores, Coach Andrews said he will give him $8."
Bonuses: There are two bonus questions included. One requires students to analyze a function table and write the function rule. It will be a two-step rule. The other requires the student to complete a function table when given a two-step function rule. This requires substitution.
Please note that each question is given a point value, such that the entire test is worth 100 points. Point values are stated in each section of the test. This makes for easy grading!
The answer key is provided, as well!
