Students will practice writing formulas for given graphs of piecewise functions. Using the Nspire, they will be able to check their answers.
Before the Activity
Students should have seen piecewise functions prior to this activity.
Download the TNS file and send to students' calculators.
During the Activity
Students will write piece-wise functions for the data or graph given. They will then answer questions about the domain, range, and specific points on the function. They will also calculate the y-value for a given x-value.
After the Activity
Have students come up with their own piecewise function (with questions) and submit it to you!
