9/11/18 - Function Relationships

Essential Question:  What makes a relationship a function?

  • Chic-Fil-A Orders…What’s fair / what’s not fair when ordering?

  • Discussion on functions - one input = one output; one output possibly connected to multiple inputs…still fair.

  • Practice Function Relationship recognition (Mapping Diagrams, Tables, Graphs, etc.)
