In this task, students will match a given function table to an appropriate graph based on the characteristics of the data. This is a great activity for 8th graders or High School students who are interpreting and analyzing linear and non-linear functions. CCSSM Standards addressed are: 8.F.1, 8.F.2, 8.F.4, 8.F.5, F-LE.1, and F-IF.4. Copy the student handout for each student (or pair of students if you prefer). Each student will need a copy of the graphs that need to be cut out and glued to the student handout. As students are working, the teacher should observe the similarities and differences among student solutions. Conclude the task by having students share their matches and justify their reasoning. The goal is to teach students to use data to make a reasonable judgment about the graphical representation for each scenario and therefore, you may accept multiple graphs for some. Suggested answer key is provided.
