Lesson objective: Predict inputs or outputs of nonlinear functions using equations.

This lesson helps to build procedural skill with calculating inputs and outputs for nonlinear functions.

Tables are used here because using tables helps with organization of information. This work develops students' understanding that nonlinear functions are predictable and equations can make predicting easier.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice MP.2 (reason abstractly and quantitatively) as they identify and quantify patterns of nonlinear functions.
