Function Junction – Exploring functions, graphing and coordinate geometry

Summary

What happens when the graphs of linear and quadratic functions share the same axis intercepts? In this hands-on workshop, we’ll use TI-Nspire CAS Navigator technology to explore multiple representations of functions, specifically the regions created near Function Junction. Estimation, ratios, function notation, algebra and calculus ideas will be covered. We’ll discuss ways you can frame your pedagogy to maintain interest and promote deeper learning for students as our findings are generalised. We’ll have rulers, graph paper and calculators for those who haven’t brought their own, and all files used will be available to participants. Ideally suited for teachers new to teaching Year 11 VCE Mathematical Methods using CAS.
