So yesterday was a productive class. We went into groups to discuss all the facts we knew about functions after doing it our selves. THAAAAAAAAT, was a great idea! I think you tend to get more when you have a conversation going on, and hearing things that either refresh your mind, or be like 'OH, i learned something new today =)' I mean, it is great to work independantly, but another way to learn is to have some sort of communication going on..
As Mr. K mentioned, there are three ways to present a function- numerically, symbolically and graphically.. It's kind of cool how one thing can be presented to you in different ways.. Just like how he showed us that block of wood.. Its kind of like for basketball, you can be told a play either, verbally, drawn on paper or see it demonstrated to you.. The same play, just presented in different ways.
We also tried to draw a graph of the lengths of our hair in a year... That was pretty difficult to draw.. But once we discussed how everyone's graph looked, and actually questioned; does this really look like how its supposed to be?, it turns out NO.. After seeing how it should be drawn, i was like OHHHHH! That makes so much sense!
