This is a unit that formalizes the definition of functions. Students will connect the idea of mathematical relationships to the concept of functions. With a mix of direct instruction, guided notes with procedural practice, and individual practice, this unit will ground students in the concept and provide a deep understanding of its usefulness.

Learning looks like students engaged in something that interests them. It looks like a variety of things going all over the classroom. Perhaps it’s an art project in one part of the room, video editing in another, and some students cutting up magazines for a collage on another. Controlled chaos is the best environment for learning.

My blended unit planning document title is called, "Equations and Inequalities." I will start chapter one by reviewing what they have learned from the last section or prior knowledge in this case.
