Unit of Instruction
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.F.1.2: Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions).  For example, given a linear function represented by a table of values and a linear function represented by an algebraic expression, determine which function has the greater rate of change.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • identify the properties of a function written in algebraic form (e.g., rate of change, meaning of y-intercept and x-intercept, linear, non-linear).
  • compare the properties of two functions that are represented differently (e.g., as an equation, in a table, graphically, or a verbal representation).
Classroom Activities


  • We will go over the task card problems together to ensure understanding.
  • Students will work on the Comparing Two Functions sheet.


  • Students will do IXL Z.5 (and finish Z.4 if not finished).
  • Students can also finish the Comparing Two Functions worksheet.


  • We will review Rate of Change and how to find it from a table, a graph, an equation, or a word problem because students are still struggling.
  • Students will then work on finishing IXL Z.4 and Z.5.
Assignments Due
  • IXL Z.5 is due by February 2/3.
