Exploring Distance Functions

Unit 3: Absolute Value Functions and More Piecewise Functions
Lesson 1 of 9

Objective: SWBAT graph absolute value functions using a verbal description of the relationship. SWBAT write piecewise functions to match these graphs.

Big Idea: Instead of memorizing the definition of absolute value, students work with the concept of distance and the number line to develop transformed absolute value functions.
