Big Ideas: Ordered pairs, tables, and graphs provide solutions to functions. Functions can be solved algebraically, by identifying ordered pairs, completing a table, or making a graph. Students will synthesize their understanding of functions with patterns in this lesson. Students will solve for dependent or independent variables in the context of the problem by analyzing the information. The tasks will model real-world situations of functions written in various function formats. Functions will be a fundamental concept in algebra and future high school math courses. NOTE: Function notation is addressed in later lessons. Vocabulary: function, independent, dependent, ordered pair Special Materials: graph paper
