Functions: Mathematical Tasks Input Output Tables and Graphing Functions
One of my favorite activities to use in my class are Mathematical Tasks. I use these Mathematical Tasks for partnering activities, group work, independent practice, assessment prep, or in my centers. Included in this set are 10 Tasks, partner and group recording sheets, black and white copies, and an answer key. I created this Mathematical Task for my 6th grade class, but it could also be used in a 7th or 8th grade class too.
This set of Mathematical Tasks asks students to complete the following types of tasks:
Create and complete Input-Output Tables
Create equations describing the function rule
Describe input-output patterns
List ordered pairs
Identify independent and dependent variables
Identify linear and non-linear graphs
Graph and identify which function is steeper
Common Core Aligned: 6.EE.9
I recommend printing these task cards in color and laminating for years of use. Students are more motivated when they see the color tasks.
