I have been getting a lot of emails regarding functions. How to teach them in a way that helps students to understand and remember what they are and why they are so important in mathematics (and science and computers and...)

So, I thought I would share some previous blog posts to help you feel encouraged and empowered when teaching functions. 

The first resource I would like to pass along will give you ideas for helping students to master all the content in your linear equations/functions in the time you have planned

I like teaching inverse functions. This inverse functions lesson plan will help you find connections with your students. With the real world context, students understand this concept well by the end of class.

If you need a bigger understand of F.IF.1 within Algebra 1, you will want to look at this example. Feel free to add to the discussion while you are there.

Rewards of a Job Well Done

While it may take more time up front to ensure that students understand the concept of functions, in the long run, it will save you time. The ability to see patterns and complete the calculations without help will be priceless. When you give students an in-depth understanding and allow time for processing the concepts, they go into long-term memory and students gain quite an advantage as they continue their math education.
