2020 T3 International Conference

Making Sense of Functions

Student comprehension of functions is more complete when they are presented with multiple representations.  In this session, participants will examine functions outside of the traditional numerical, algebraic, and graphical models.  Using the TI-Innovator, numerical input will be transformed into real world output that students can see and hear.  Real world input will then be used to create numerical and graphical output.  Come hear the difference between linear and exponential functions.
