## Reflection: Continuous Assessment Graphing Piecewise Defined Functions - Section 5: Closure

Whenever students work on assignments I move around the room to informally assess understanding. During this lesson I was able to capture a student explaining how to graph the piecewise defined function.

During the explanation I observed how the student was a coach in the tutoring. The student questioned the struggling student and made sure the student understood that the endpoint would be open and not closed.

When student teach others in the manner demonstrated on the video I can see who is proficient with the material.

# Graphing Piecewise Defined Functions

Unit 2: Functions and Piecewise Functions
Lesson 4 of 15

## Big Idea: Through the use of technology students see how to graph functions whose domains are restricted and then develop a process to graph piecewise-defined functions by hand.
