Student will solve real life problems using a function table.
This lesson will reinforce the concept of a function table and relate it to graphs.
If the student has access to a computer the following website can be accessed for more practice http://www.mathplayground.com/functionmachine.html. (This site has not been tested with JAWS or any other screen reader.)
If the student is having difficulty understanding the concept of a function and function table relate it to a machine like a toaster. Bread is put into the toaster, the toaster gets to work and toast comes out. Then move onto simple functions machines like an animal machine. Figure out animals and number of legs. 1 cat = 4 legs, 2 cats ? legs, So when 1 cat goes into the function machine 4 legs come out, when two cats go in how many legs come out? Then turn the function table around, giving student the number of legs and ask how many cats.
