See Teacher Resource 9 for the answer key. Circulate throughout the room and monitor students responses to determine their strengths and needs in regard to number patterns, problem solving strategies, and using s. Provide students with opportunities to share their responses and strategies with the class. Launch

3 Teacher Facilitation Introduce the students to the Magic Function Machine. Refer to Teacher Resource 1, Directions for Magic Function Machine. The teacher will need to use index cards to make digit cards to use with the Magic Function Machine throughout both lessons. The digits needed on the cards will depend on the numbers used in the lesson. Explain to students that when you put numbers in the Magic Function Machine another number comes out. The machine has a function or a rule it follows every time you put a number in. Something happens inside the machine so depending on the number you put in a certain number will come out. The machine has a function or rule that it follows for each number you put in. Use the problems from the preassessment to demonstrate how the machine works. Stand inside the box so that you are in control of the output. Ask a student to place one spider through the input slot (At this time you might not want to refer to that slot as the input since the vocabulary has not been introduced). Refer to Teacher Resources 2 and 3 for the pictures of the spiders and the spider legs. Tell the student who put the spider in the box to take what you pass him/her. Pass 8 spider legs (1 spider legs card) through the output to the student. Ask the student to hold the picture of the legs up for the class to see and tell the class how many spider legs there are in all. Tell the students that every time you put 1 spider in the machine 8 spider legs will come out. Record the numbers on a table on the board. (A student can be the recorder). You can tape the pictures next to each of the numbers to provide a visual for students who will need it. Choose another student to place 2 spiders through the input and pass 16 spider legs (2 spider legs cards) to him/her. Record the numbers on the table on the board. Ask the class what relationship they notice between the number of spiders and the number of spider legs. Ask the students how we can figure out how many spider legs a given amount of spiders will have. s may use many strategies to explain the relationship between the two numbers and how they can determine the output (skip counting, repeated addition, multiplication, hundreds chart, counting the legs on the pictures, etc.) Continue using the spiders as a visual example for students to begin to see the relationship between the input and the output. Refer to the objective and discuss with students that today they will be working with s and looking closer at the relationship between the numbers in a. They will also use the to help solve problems. Display a vertical and a horizontal on the board and label the parts of the tables with sentence strips labeled with the vocabulary words:, input, and output.

6 Embedded Assessment Observe students responses on their dry erase boards to determine understanding. Observe the students problem solving skills, understanding of the concept, and arithmetic skills and complete the checklist, Teacher Resource 6, Function Table Checklist #1, as you notice students struggling with these areas. Reteaching/Extension Reteaching: Use pictures of objects to help the students better understand the s. Refer to the example used earlier in the lesson that required using pictures of spiders and pictures of the spider legs. You can use body parts so that the struggling students can be kinesthetically involved. For example, ask one student to stand in front of the group (input) and then determine the number of eyes (output). Complete a showing the relationship between the number of students and the number of eyes. Ask other students to stand up as you complete the. You can tell students to count the number of eyes as several students stand in front of the group. Extension: Use cards and the Rule Spinner, Resources 4, Spinner- Function Tables and Resource 5, Function Table Spinner, to practice completing s. Lesson 2 Pre-Assessment/Launch Use the Magic Function Machine from the previous lesson and display the blank horizontal and vertical s on the board to use throughout the lesson. Ask a student to put a digit card with a number larger than 1 through the input of the Magic Function Machine. Stand in the box and pass a number through the output to the student. Record the numbers in one of the s on the board. Repeat the process above with 2 other numbers. Ask students to discuss with their groups what rule or function is happening in the machine. Yesterday all of our inputs started with 1. When we start with a different number it s a little harder to complete the table. Tell students to look at the relationship between the input and output to figure out what is happening.

7 Ask groups to share their responses with the class. Require students to explain how they got their answer and why their answer is correct. Be sure to ask students to give specific examples to support their ideas. Teacher Facilitation Review vocabulary (, input, output, relationship, and rule) from the previous lesson by referring to your labeled function tables and discussing examples shared during the previous day for rule and relationship. Model finding the rule in a by using pattern blocks. Place 3 triangles side by side on the board. Observe that 3 triangles have 9 sides. Record in the the number of triangles (input) 3 and the number of sides of the triangles (output) 9. Place 2 more triangles on the board. Record the numbers in the 5 (input) 15 (output). Place 2 more triangles on the board. Record the numbers in the 7 (input) 21 (output). Use the Think Aloud strategy to model how to identify the rule in the. I know that I need to look at the input and the output to try to figure out what is happening. I have to look at the relationship

8 between the numbers or how they are connected. I see that the output is greater than the input. The output is increasing. When a number increases I know that you have to add or multiply. The rule has to do with adding and/or multiplying. If the input is 3 and the output is 9, I know that I can use repeated addition, =9. I know that I can also skip count by 3 to get 9. 3, 6, 9. I also know that I can multiply the input by 3 to get the output, 3 x 3 = 9. Those are three strategies I can use to find the rule. I need to try this with another input to make sure that this is really the rule. If I multiply the input, 5, times 3, then I get the output, 15. If I multiply the input, 7, times 3, then I get the output, 21. Multiplying by 3 works every time so the rule for this is multiply by 3. Record the rule above the. So 1 triangle has 3 sides and 100 triangles have 300 sides. I can figure out the number of sides any amount of triangles has because I know the rule for this. s can also use the pattern blocks to count the total number of sides for the given amount on triangles if they need to see the rule in a concrete manner. Complete another using a different pattern block. Ask students to assist you in completing the. Guide the students through the process of identifying the rule for the by questioning. As you ask each question give students an opportunity to share with a partner before sharing with the class (Think-Pair-Share). Some possible questions to guide the discussion include: o Is the output increasing or decreasing compared to the input? What does this mean? o What relationship do you see between the input and the output? o What strategies can we use to figure out the relationship between the input and output? o How can we be sure that the rule we write is correct? Distribute dry erase boards or mini-chalkboards where students can record their responses. Model for students how to find the rule when you don t have the pattern blocks to count the sides. Use the Magic Function Machine to put various numbers in and out of the machine. Record the numbers on a. s can record their rule on their dry erase board. s should be required to explain how they got their answer and why their answer is correct with a partner and then share with the class. Provide students with opportunities to use both horizontal and vertical s so they are comfortable working with both. Create several problems in context so that students get sufficient practice in identifying the rule of a given. You can provide the scenarios and complete the as a class. Then, students can write the rule for the and solve the problem. One real world example that can be used with students is:

9 Fred wants to purchase 10 video games and he wants to know how much the video games will cost if he purchases them from the store, Best Electronics. Two games at Best Electronics cost \$24, 4 games cost \$48, and 7 games cost \$84. What can we do to figure out how much 10 video games will cost Fred? (rule) Application s will use their individual Magic Function Machine to find the rule for several s. Refer to Teacher Resource 7. They will record their responses on the Magic Function Machine Recording Sheet, Resource 6. Embedded Assessment Observe students responses on the dry erase boards. Observe the students problem solving skills, understanding of the concept, and arithmetic skills and complete the checklist, Teacher Resource 8, as you notice students struggling with these areas. Collect and review students Magic Function Machine Recording Sheet. Reteaching/Extension Reteaching: Provide students with more opportunities finding the rule when given concrete objects, similar to the problems used earlier in the lesson that used pattern blocks. Some possible activities include: o Folding a paper and creating a with the input being the number of folds and the output being the number of parts the paper is separated into. 1 fold (input)- 2 parts of paper (output) (Burns, 2000, p. 116)* o Drawing 1 point to represent the input and the number of line segments will be the output, 0. 2 points (input) 1 line segment (output) (Burns, 2000, p. 117)* *Adapted from About Teaching Mathematics: A K-8 Resource (2000) by Marilyn Burns

10 Extension: o Give students completed s and require them to write the rule for each and then create a real world situation that could be used along with the numbers in the. Summative Assessment: s will complete a summative assessment, Resources 7a & 7b, Function Tables, that consists of two selected response questions that require the students to complete the output of a when given the input and a question that requires students to complete the input of a when given the output. The students will also have to complete a BCR where they will have to identify the rule for the given and then explain why their answer is correct. Note to teacher: Teacher Resource 9, Answer Key for Resources, is the answer key for the summative assessment and all of the other resources. Authors: Jenifer B.

22 The Gatekeeper-Vocabulary Activity Teacher Resource 4 Materials: Sentence strip (to write definition) Pictures of objects and numbers that are related and are not related Hula hoop (optional) Sign labeled Gatekeeper (for teacher) Directions: 1. Define relationship as a connection between two or more things. Display the definition on the board for students to use and refer to. Give students examples of how a mother is connected to a daughter and a sister is connected to a brother. There is a relationship. 2. Tell the students that they will be playing a game called Gatekeeper. The teacher will wear a sign labeled Gatekeeper and the hula-hoop will serve as the gate the students will be allowed to pass or not pass. 3. Choose 5 students and pass out pictures of items that are animals and that are not animals (For example: dog, car, cat, building, and horse). The students will stand at the front of the room and hold the pictures so the class can see them. 4. Tell the class that you will let some students with their picture pass through the gate (step through the hula hoop) but not all of the students will get to pass through the gate. The class job is to figure out why some pictures can pass through the gate, but not others. 5. Ask students why some could pass. s should easily conclude that all of the animals could pass. Explain to the students that all of the pictures are connected and related because they are all animals. Refer back to the definition of relationship. 6. Follow the procedure above several times to help students see the relationship between other pictures and discuss how the pictures are connected. 7. Bridge to numbers and relationships with the last example to prepare students to examine the relationship between the input and output in the s. One number example is to give the following numbers to five students: 5, 10, 2, 15, and 17. Allow the students to pass through the gate if their number is divisible by 5 or if they can skip count by 5 to get to that number.
