This activity is designed as a classroom station for individuals. It allows student to compare functions described verbally, in tables, on graphs, and equations. I like run off four copies of the spinners and laminate them. I use paper clips as the actual spinners, but you can use the included arrows if you wish. I laminate the students directions to keep at the station, as well.
Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

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.
Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function A = s2 giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.
