Tables of Functions

Students are introduced to linear functions in the form y = mx + c by breaking them down using function machines with input and outputs.  An interactive Excel file and Jigsaw puzzle are included with the lesson for additional consolidation and practice.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use a function machine to determine an output of a linear function given its x value.
  • Most students should be able to create a table of results showing x and y for any linear function.
  • Some students should be able to derive a linear function given corresponding x and y values.
