## Reflection: High Expectations Introduction of Parent Functions - Section 3: Closure

The lessons in the Function Unit are an Introduction to Functions, not a mastery of every detail of functions.  I think that high expectations, and vocabulary in this Unit introduced early to the students will set them up for success in Algebra I.  Algebra I has such a large focus on functions, that this Unit outlines the upcoming functions that are studied later.  The functions will be studied more in depth at a later time.  The students were not perfect in their independent note taking, but they persevered(MP1).  It was a slow start for some, but all students took some ownership in developing their own notes, with a large amount of vocabulary that they were unfamiliar.  There is still some work needed on applying the vocabulary correctly and identifying the key features of each function. However, the more the vocabulary is repeated and applied, the more expert these students will become on functions.
