I created these evaluating functions from a table notes for my Algebra 1 students to put in their interactive notebooks.
Another big change I made this year was introducing evaluating functions by only looking at graphs and tables FIRST. Once my students were comfortable with evaluating this way, then I introduced evaluating from an equation.
In the past, I did it backwards of that and started with equations. I think it was too much too soon. This year seemed to work a million times better!
