Big Ideas: Many situations in life can be described mathematically. Graphs visually model relationships between variables. This lesson builds on interpreting functions that model a relationship between two quantities. The task has students selecting problems from a grid showing situations where they will have to graph the situation presented. When they are done, they are to work with their peers to determine what each column has in common. This builds toward understanding and applying functional relationships including increasing and decreasing slopes, positive, negative, intercepts and periodicity. Vocabulary: increasing, decreasing, rate, slope, positive, negative, relative maximum, relative minimum, intercept, periodicity
