              Plotting Reciprocal Functions

              Students learn about plotting reciprocal functions using a table of results and choosing suitable axes.  The concepts of an asymptote and exponential growths are explored.  As learning progresses students use a reciprocal graph to model a real world scenerio and predict unknown values.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to complete a table of results for a reciprocal function.
              • Most students should be able to plot the graph of a reciprocal function in all four quadrants.
              • Some students should be able to model a real life reciprocal function graphically.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
