Algebra I End-of-Course Exam Changing the way we teach.

“ Why can ’ t we just teach the way I was taught? It worked just fine for me! ” Jim

That was then … This is now!

So why can ’ t we just teach the way we were taught?

Exploring Objective 2: Demonstrate an understanding of the properties and attributes of functions.

Algebra I EOC Coming soon, to a campus near you!

Range Frame the top and bottom boundaries of each graph to help you find the possible y-values (the Range). x y Domain Frame the left and right boundaries of each graph to help you find the possible x-values (the Domain).

Work with your partner to find & record the Domain and Range of each card.

Domain: - 2  x  2 Range: - 3  y  3

Domain: - 3  x  1 Range: - 2  y  2

Domain: - 3  x   or x  - 3 Range: - 1  y   or y  - 1

Domain: - 2  x  4 Range: - 3  y  2

Domain and Range Puzzler

You will need… One set of puzzler cards for every 2 people One Coordinate Grid Mat for every 2 people A “Puzzler #1” recording sheet for each person Find two puzzler cards that can be used to create a graph with each given Domain and Range. You may use the cards more than once.

So what do these activities have to do with the Algebra I EOC? Putting It All Together

Look at the data on the following released TAKS items covering Domain & Range. What observations can you make about students’ understandings and misunderstandings? How do the data support your observations? What classroom experiences can we provide to clear up misunderstandings?

14.The graph shows the path of a golf ball. What is the range of this function? F.0 < y < 100 G.0 < y < 100 H.0 < x < 5 J. 0 < x < 5 Objective 2: A.2B TSIET identify mathematical domains and ranges and determine reasonable domain and range values for given situations, both continuous and discrete. 2003 TAKS Grade 10th #14 F: 16%, G: 50%*, H: 25%, J: 9% *correct answer

27. What is the domain of the function shown on the graph. A.-3 < x < 3 B.-3 < x < 3 C.-5 < x < 4 D.-5 < x < 4 Objective 2: A.2B TSIET identify mathematical domains and ranges and determine reasonable domain and range values for given situations, both continuous and discrete. 2004 TAKS Exit #27 A: 31%, B: 44%*, C: 13%, D: 12% *correct answer

Objective 2: A.2B TSIET identify mathematical domains and ranges and determine reasonable domain and range values for given situations, both continuous and discrete. 12. Mr. Maxwell asked his students to identify the domain represented by the function graphed below. Which of the following student responses is correct? F.-5 < x < 6 G.-6 < x < 2 H.-5 < x < -2 J. Not here 2006 TAKS Exit #12 F: 72%*, G: 7%, H: 7%, J: 13 %
