Lesson objective: Find matching function representations consisting of equations, tables, and graphs.

This lesson helps to build fluency with creating different representations of nonlinear functions. Equations, tables, and graphs are used here because they support understanding and interpreting the equivalency of different nonlinear representations. This work develops students' understanding that nonlinear functions can be represented in equations, tables, and graphs.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice MP.1 (make sense of problems and persevere in solving them) as they try different approaches to identifying equivalent equations, tables, and graphs.

Key vocabulary:

  • nonlinear

Special materials needed:

  • graph paper
