Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Introduction of Parent Functions - Section 1: Warm Up

 

Pictionary may seem to be an unusual way to teach mathematics, but it is a good way to hook students at the beginning of this lesson.  As my students were having difficulty drawing what their partner was verbalizing, it helped them to realize the importance of a common math language or vocabulary. That realization helped motivate the goals of this lesson for my students: know the correct vocabulary. Knowing a common vocabulary will help students explain the graphs in order for their partners to illustrate the graphs more accurately.
