With these task cards, your students will practice finding composite functions, finding domain and range of a function and its inverse, finding the inverse of a function, and graphing.
The way I like to use these 6 task cards: have the students work in pairs. Try to work your class in groups of 6 so that you can use the task cards in a rotation. For example: a class of 36 you can split in pairs and you’ll print 3 sets of task cards for three rotations. Each pair works with a different task card for 3 minutes. Then tell the students to switch. At the end, all students should have answered all six questions. I have found this method effective at keeping students focused throughout the duration of the activity. Then I go over the answers with them, either by posting them on my smartboard or having them come up and show their solutions.
You can also just print the task cards with the answer sheet on the back and assign it for homework, extra credit, or simply additional practice.
• Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.
• Understand that a function from one set (called the domain) to another set (called the range) assigns to each element of the domain exactly one element of the range. If f is a function and x is an element of its domain, then f(x) denotes the output of f corresponding to the input x. The graph of f is the graph of the equation y = f(x).
• Use function notation and evaluate functions for inputs in their domains
