4 different equations of functions each representing from a different function family. All functions represented in the same graph. Students play with calculators inputting values to see which correspond to the appropriate function in the graph.
Chunk a graph to use the relationships between distances on a graph to estimate the value of a zero of the graph.
Students sketch the parent function and then sketch different transformations of that function to compare them.
Interpreting functions conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit and Kelvin to Celsius. Then create functions converting Kelvin to Celsius and it's inverse as well as explain what variables represent.
Note the wording might be easier for students to understand if "conversion" or "convert" were used. It might be useful to mention that the USA uses Fahrenheit, but most other countries use Celsius, and scientists use Kelvins.
Use sentences that describe different ways the rate of change is changing to zoom in on features of a function.
A table comparing the populations of three different cities every 10 years. Students figure out which family of functions best models each city.
Students use equations, graphs, and tables to compare linear, exponential, and quadratic functions. As students compare the functions they should use rate of change and end behavior to help differentiate the function families and their unique properties. Meant to be supported with some kind of graphing technology whether graphing calculators, Desmos, Geogebra, or some other similar tools.
Compare tables and graphs of polynomials to make connections between the intercepts and end behaviour between the two representations.
For each card students are given two representations and explain how they are the same function. Then they complete the other representations that are missing so that each card will end up with:

A Classroom Challenge (aka formative assessment lesson) is a classroom-ready lesson that supports formative assessment. The lesson’s approach first allows students to demonstrate their prior understandings and abilities in employing the mathematical practices, and then involves students in resolving their own difficulties and misconceptions through structured discussion.
Students learn how to transform parent functions into other functions using transformations.
