Key Features of Graphs

View Resource

Description

Overview:
This is the first unit in the Algebra II curriculum and is fundamental for the rest of the year. During this course students study many different functions and their key features. Students will compare, contrast, and make generalizations about these functions using the key features and proper notation. This unit ensures that students can identify each type of key feature properly throughout the rest of the year.Objectives:  Students will express and interpret intervals using both interval and inequality notation.Students will be able to express the domain and range of graphs using both interval and inequality notation.Students will be able to find the x and y intercepts of a function from a graph or from a linear equation.Students will be able to identify extrema, increasing, decreasing and constant intervals of a graph using interval notation.Students will be able to write the end behavior for any given graph.Technology Utilized: ● Desmos - This is an online graphing tool that can be used to make basic graphs as well as premade teacher bundles with student investigations. In this unit I have taken some of the premade investigations and edited them to meet my classroom needs.● Answer Garden - This tool will be used to brainstorm key features at the beginning of the unit and to assess student’s prior knowledge.● Kahoot - This tool is used as a classroom formative assessment. Students must be all on the same question which can also elicit discussion and show misconceptions with instant feedback.● Google Forms - This tool is used for short assessments, exit tickets, and graded homework assignments. The ability for multiple types of questions and self checking quiz option make this an easy way to quickly assess students and give feedback.
