Graphs of Simple Nonlinear Functions

Time to move on to nonlinear functions. Scholars create input/output tables and use these to graph simple nonlinear functions. They calculate rates of change to distinguish between linear and nonlinear functions.

Instructional Ideas

  • Have the class create a graphic organizer comparing the shapes of graphs, rates of change, and equations for linear and nonlinear functions
Classroom Considerations

  • Provide graph paper for learners to use in the problem set
  • Pupils need to be able to calculate rate of change using the slope formula
Pros

  • Includes reproducible student worksheets for all parts of the lesson
  • Contains input/output tables for class members to fill in
Cons

  • None
