  • Hand out the Funky Function Tables and have students complete it as a warm up to review basic function tables (input-output tables). Go over the warm up as a class.
  • Remind students that a function table is a t-chart that shows a pattern. The patterns in function tables follow a rule called the function rule. Point out an example of a function rule on the warm-up page.
  • Tell students that today we are going to use function tables to make graphs.
