Sample Unit Organizers:
Function Families Investigation – modified through the years – this small group investigation allows students to learn how to enter different types of functions in graphing calculator; students group functions based on shapes of graph, then give a descriptioni of similarities in the functions’ equations.
Tic Tac Times – Students pick 2 factos listed at bottom of the page and multiply. Place game piece on the product. First player to get 3 or 4 (you pick the rules) in a row, wins! For more challenge, each player must use one of the factors just used by their opponent.
Systems of Equations
Battleships and Mines – Students work in small groups to determine where their Battleship will intercept enemey lanes; the solution to the system will determine where to place mines on ememy lanes.
