I am really pleased with how this discrete vs continuous functions foldable turned out! I really like how it combines a card sort within a foldable.

Students were given six cards. Each card had ONE of the following filled in: situation, variables, or sketch of graph. As a class, we filled in the missing information and classified each card as discrete or continuous.

Before beginning our sorting activity, we did a quick note page summary of discrete vs. continuous.

Here’s what our finished product looked like after A LOT of discussion and debate and more discussion. It took a lot longer to complete this activity than I expected, but it was a productive use of our time.

I was afraid that my finished product wasn’t going to live up to my expectations when I was creating this activity. But, I absolutely loved how this activity turned out.

Domain and Range went so much smoother this year than it did in years past. I think a big difference was that we had discussed discrete vs. continuous BEFORE talking domain and range. In the past, I tried to introduce both ideas simultaneously. Sometimes our students just need to digest one concept before starting the next.
