Product Description
This is a worksheet created to introduce students to power functions and their patterns, specifically the end behaviors of even and odd functions. Potential uses: Students work in small groups or individually with a graphing calculator to complete the graphs and recognize patterns. Students or groups can verify their hypotheses together or as a whole class to assess level of understanding. Options for differentiation are easy to apply: for students who recognize the patterns immediately, questions at the bottom explore further patterns (what happens if the leading coefficient is negative). For Algebra II, this was used at the beginning of UCSMP chapter 7 regarding power functions. This was also used in a precalculus class as a 15-20 minute priming activity before exploring non-calculator graphing of rational functions.
