Lesson 5

Function Representations

These materials, when encountered before Algebra 1, Unit 4, Lesson 5 support success in that lesson.

Lesson Narrative

In this lesson, students connect representations of functions using equations, tables, and graphs. In the associated Algebra 1 lesson, students make similar connections along with situations and function notation. Students are supported by spending additional time focusing on only a few of the connections at a time.

Students must attend to precision (MP6) when they connect different representations of the same function and draw a graph of a function including points from a table.

Learning Goals

Teacher Facing

  • Connect different representations of the same function.
