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) Instructional Goal: Relations and functions: Identify functions Essential Content: Knowledge of domain, range, and how functions relate the two Time Estimate: 50 minutes Instructional Phase Make a table on the board, with two columns labeled input and output and put numbers in represented by a function that I dont tell the class about. See if any of the students can start to guess what the numbers are before I write them down, encourage this sort of thing. After a few of these, once the majority of the class starts to see what is going on, Introduce concepts.

Here, I will rattle off a series of definitions and then take questions. A function f of a variable x is a rule that assigns to each number x in the functions domain a single number f(x). One rule of functions that is very important is that there is only one output value for each input value. It is ok for more than one input value to come up with the same output value, but functions will not have two output values for one input value. Here, I would show them the Prezi presentation and attempt to more clearly explain this concept. Functions are said to go from the domain into the range; the domain is simply the set of all of the possible inputs, whereas the range is the set of all possible outputs. People tend to use these terms throughout every sub-discipline of mathematics. The simplest sorts of functions are called linear functions, because when they are graphed on the Cartesian plane, the input and output values form a straight line. These functions can be represented by the equation y=f(x)=mx+b, where m and b are fixed and determined by the nature of the function, x is the input, or independent variable, and y is the output, or dependent variable.

At this point, I would go over some examples of functions on the board, as well as some non-examples which are not functions, and show them why that is the case. Teach them some tricks with identifying equations from graphs and graphing from equations as well.

Time: 10 mins

Get the students geared up with their computers, and have them play this game. They can start at the beginner level and then move on to the

Time: 5 mins

After the game, go back to the board and go over some trickier examples, to make sure that the students understand the concepts. HW Assignment (Assessment)

There is a link with a quiz on function knowledge in the write up. The students are to take the quiz, and then take a screenshot with their final score (completion grade).
