Algebra I Module 3, Topic B, Overview

Class In Lecture

In Topic B, students connect their understanding of functions to their knowledge of graphing from Grade 8.  They learn the formal definition of a function and how to recognize, evaluate, and interpret functions in abstract and contextual situations (F-IF.A.1, F-IF.A.2).  Students examine the graphs of a variety of functions and learn to interpret those graphs using precise terminology to describe such key features as domain and range, intercepts, intervals where the function is increasing or decreasing, and intervals where the function is positive or negative.  (F-IF.A.1, F-IF.B.4, F-IF.B.5, F-IF.C.7a).
