Students match an equation to the graph and the table. This activity consists of 4 games with 5 functions each. The first game is linear. The second games is linear and quadratic. The third game is linear, quadratic and absolute value functions (I like giving this one even if they haven't seen absolute value graphs. The students are great at using process of elimination then using the y-intercept to help match unfamiliar graphs.) The fourth game is exponential.
I make each game on a different color paper to help keep the games organized and separated. I also cut the pieces and put them in envelopes or bags and give each group (or pair) a copy of game one. The students finish game one, I check it and give them the next game if everything is correct. If they have something wrong, I don't tell them what it is but let them fix it. To make sure the students really understand what is happening with the graphs, tables and equations, do not let them use a graphing calculator.
Thank you and please let me know if you have questions.
