Developed as part of the Math Circles of Inquiry project, this session is an introduction to functions. This module allows students to investigate the definition of a function, function notation, key features of a function including increasing, decreasing (in both interval and inequality notation), maximum and minimum, average rate of change and domain and range. Materials include a full packet of worksheets pertaining to this unit (54 pages). This part of the unit (not including transforming functions) should take about six hours of class time.
