Algebra I:

Tuesday, in small groups, students completed the following task after direct instruction on how to use the TI-84 graphing calculator to graph different types of functions.

These are the graphs students used to sort in the activity above.

Wednesday in class, we used a plenary discussion of students sorts and they summarized their noticings in a foldable for INB 21

Thursday there was a retrieval quiz over Arithmetic & Geometric Sequences and a pre-assessment for Functions to see where students stand in their understanding.

Friday – using function notation to generate tables of values for each function family, then graphing the ordered pairs to compare the shapes of the graphs and look for patterns within the tables of values.

We looked at our benchmark scores and set December goals. See me if you were absent to set your goal.

We visited 7 stations to graph predictions of what we thought the graphs of scoops vs water height might look like.

On your paper #1-7 and sketch your graphs.

Today, Monday 9/22/15 we worked in small groups to dip water, collect data.

We began our Functions Unit with this Pre-Activity.

Using 2 colored pencils – you will graph what you think the Graphing Story is, then check your graph and sketch the actual answer onto the same graph.

Here is the file for the graphs.GraphingStories

You can choose 8 videos from Graphing Stories Website to complete this task.

Think about something you would like to video on your own to create your own Graphing Story.

In class, we were introduced to TI-84s – menus, keystrokes, homescreen calculattions. Each day this week, we will intro another aspect of the graphing calculators for in class use.

Problem Sets 11, 12, 13 were passed out for this week’s assignments.
