What Does Your Representation Tell You?

Published on 10/20/2009

Activity Overview

This activity examines contexts for linear and non-linear functions and connections between numerical, graphic, and symbolic representations. Students will predict the type of function from a table, a graph, and an expression. Pre-service teachers will also examine considerations for teaching including what content-specific and pedagogical knowledge the teacher needs.
