Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Families of Functions


Students will use a discovery approach to learn about the different families of functions. They will look for patterns between multiple function representations and use those patterns to identify key characteristics of linear, quadratic, absolute value, exponential, and rational functions. Students will identify function patterns in equations, tables, and graphs. After they make these discoveries they will have opportunities to test out their hypothesis. 

Learning Targets: 
Be able to identify a function's family from a graph, table, or equation.
Recognize characteristics of multiple families of functions.
Recognize multiple representations of a function.
Analyze characteristics of functions to summarize characteristics of function families
