MCC8F1: Understand that a function is a
rule that assigns to each input exactly
one output. The graph of a function is
the set of ordered pairs consisting of an
input and the corresponding output.

Then discuss what makes this a
function and what would not.
Students will review a graphic
organizer about functions from
Friday.
Then complete the practice over
functions and nonfunctions in
mapping, tables and ordered pairs.
Students will utilize their graphic
organizer and discuss what is and is
NOT a function using mapping,
tables, and ordered pairs.

How do I graph a function?
Students will complete the

Graph the following points on the
coordinate plane:
Essential Question(s)
Opening (5-10 min)
(0,1) (1,2) (2,3)
Review Homework and Powerpoint
over Functions
Work-Time Activities (40 min)
Closure Activity (10 min)
What do you notice about these points
when you connect the dots?
Students will complete activity where
they identify different representations
of functions and nonfunctions and
explain why.
Students will complete handout where
they graph functions and then go on
to their activity when they can justify
their understanding of graphing
functions.
Ticket-out-the door: Define what is a
function and not a function in their
own words.
Students will present their graphs of
functions they created.
