Find answers to the top 10 questions parents ask about TI graphing calculators.
Learn about the math and science behind what students are into, from art to fashion and more.
Get hundreds of video lessons that show how to graph parent functions and transformations.
Students will learn to identify the domain and range of various real-world step functions. They will graphically explore numerical data points and observe step functions.
Students are introduced to the step function. They will use lists to calculate the cost of a cell phone plan for minute usage. After each number is calculated, they will graph it as a scatter plot.
Students will then view a graph of the step function and use the Trace tool to determine the range of the function. A discussion should follow about the difference between an open circle and closed circle.
In the second problem, students will determine the domain and range of a cost function. They will use the graph to calculate the cost to mail a 7.25 ounce letter. There are two extension or homework problems that have students identify the domain and range of several different functions.
