I wrote these guided notes for my algebra one students as an introduction to piecewise functions. They understand a function as an input / output machine and they understand the notation. They do not know about the vertical line test or formal definition yet, and they do not know the words domain and range. But, since we were finishing up compound inequalities, I thought it would be a great place and time to introduce the piecewise function.
This is not a circuit! It's just a set of notes I would want my students to work through with me to develop the idea, generate discussion, and keep for reference.
Also included is an assignment written by my student teacher, Ryley Blomberg! The assignment needs some edits and I will repost everything when I get a chance! Thanks for your patience!
