Evaluating Functions Triples Activity
This triples activity was created to increase students' understanding of function notation. Not only will students practice evaluating functions, but they will also practice solving for x given f(x).
Given a function, evaluate for a given value. (Example: Given a function, find f(2))
Given a function, solve for x. (Example: Given f(x) = 20, find x). Students must be able to solve a two-step equation.
Given a graph of a function, find the f(x) value that corresponds to a given x-value.
Given a graph of a function, find the x value that corresponds to a given f(x) value.
Once students have solved all 24 cards, they look for the matching "triples". There will be 8 sets of three cards, each having the same answer. Students can work on their own or with a partner to match the cards. They can show their work directly on the back of the card, or on a separate sheet of paper if you prefer. Once they are finished, I have my students staple their "triples" together and place in a zip-lock bag.
The letters make this super easy to grade! I included an answer key to use to ensure the correct cards and matched.
