# Q4W1 Honors Math Teacher Kimberlie Hymes Math 6th 31 Functions
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.F.1.1
Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is a set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.

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).

MAFS.8.F.1.3
Interpret the equation y = mx + b as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• identify a function from a graph, equation or set of ordered pairs.
• explain that a function represents a relationship between an input and an output where the output depends on the input; therefore, there can only be one output for each input.

• 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).

• identify a linear function as y = mx + b
• identify linear functions as having graphs that are straight lines.
• identify functions that are not linear from equations, tables, and graphs.
• give examples of relationships that are non-linear functions.
• compare/contrast linear vs. non-linear represented as an equation, table, and graphs.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)  8th Grade Z1, Z8, Y1, Y6

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments.

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) None

Function Table Worksheet

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems.

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
