Learn how in 5 minutes with a tutorial resource. Try it Now. This 2-day lesson includes 6 pages of guided notes, 2 two-page assignments, and an extra page of challenging piecewise functions quadratic pieces. Students will observe many types of functions, but they will only graph lines and parabolas, if using the extra sheet provided.

What does equal when? Because we use the first equation. Determine the value of if the function is. In order to determine the value of of the function we set. For the function defined below, what is the value of when?
Dicey Functions Day 1: Piecewise functions are basic functions... just cut up!
A piecewise-defined function is one which is defined not by a single equation, but by two or more. Each equation is valid for some interval. The function in this example is piecewise-linear, because each of the three parts of the graph is a line.
There is a clicker question built into page 2 of the flipchart that just has students review function notation and what it means to evaluate a function for a given value of x. Students will just text in their numeric answers so you can check to be sure all students understand this basic function notation before moving onto evaluating piecewise functions. In my class, we do a Homework Quiz every Monday. So for my calendar this lesson is landing on a Monday, so we will take about 10 minutes out of class to do that.
