This 8-slide PowerPoint focuses on 3 common mistakes students make when determining and using a rule to complete or extend a function table.
The 3 mistakes focused on are:
1.) Deciding on a rule by only looking at one x and y value
2.) Not writing the rule as a function/equation, using x and y
3.) Applying the rule to the output to get the input, instead of the other way around.
For each mistake, a problem is given with the "mistake" being made, along with an explanation explaining why it is incorrect. Guiding questions are used throughout so that you may use "think-pair-share" or wait time to encourage deeper thinking before progressing.
*This PowerPoint is best used after students have experienced the initial lesson and have been given time to practice. This PowerPoint aims to eliminate these common mistakes and improve concept mastery.
Animations are used so that text appears "upon click".
This PowerPoint was made using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.
