Function Tables and Graphs in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed it for my Algebra 1 class, but it can be used for lower grades as well. This lesson was two lesson from Pre-Algebra put into one lesson. The lesson teaches how to complete function table, write a rule for a function and find points on a function graph.
The presentation has 156 slides with lots of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit:
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique, guided animation, that helps to eliminate confusion and guides the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem (Green is for the answer, red for wrong or canceled numbers, & blue, purple & sometimes orange for focusing the next step or separating things.) Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
Define, evaluate, and compare functions
1. Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.
2. 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.
Please note that the PowerPoint is not editable.
If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, slight wording adjustment for language differences, or a slide reordering just ask.
