Reflection: Unit Exams Functioning with Functions: Unit Assessment - Section 1: Assessment

Combining functions is something that causes my students difficulty. They sometimes get bogged down with the algebraic equations of each individual function that they forget that they can just use a graph to evaluate specific values at certain points.

A graph like this can help to build that conceptual understanding and is an example of one I will use with my students during this unit's lessons in the future. Because these functions are not simple, students will be forced to analyze a problem like (f - g)(0) from a graphical perspective instead of an algebraic one. This will give them another tool in their arsenal so that they won't make simple mistakes during an assessment.
