Finding the Inverse of a Function Foldable

This finding the inverse of a function foldable was inspired by @druinok’s post from February

Last year, my Algebra 2 students really struggled with the concept of an inverse.  So, this year, I decided to start talking about inverses very early in the school year.  This will allow us to revisit the concept over and over as we explore different types of function in a much more in depth manner.  By the time the EOI rolls around, my students should no longer be scared when they see the word inverse!

I want my students to be able to find the inverse if they are given a set of points, a graph, or an equation.  Since we have only just started exploring functions in general, the examples we went through were quite simplistic.  We will explore much more complicated inverses as the year progresses!

A lot of my students were terrified when I told them that we would be learning about inverses.  By the end of the lesson, they were amazed that inverses were actually quite easy.

Alternate Format

In subsequent years, I slightly switched the format of this inverse foldable.

I used the Domain and Range foldable last year and LOVED IT! However, now I'm having trouble finding the copy of the graphs that fit into the middle of the interactive foldable. I looked on the website that you have linked above where you said you got them, but I can't find them! HELP!!!

I absolutely LOVE everything on this page! I am definitely going to use all of it. Thanks so much for sharing! I'm starting my second year of teaching and I love finding amazing resources like this. You are amazing!

Hi Sarah, I am always so inspired by you! Thanks for all the great ideas. I think I've improved on your domain/range interactive cards at least from a cutting perspective. See for more information.

thanks for all the ideas. Do you have the answer key for the domain/range card sort? Can I get a copy?

Hi! I love this idea. I have looked over the blogpost over and over, but I do not see the download for the cards you used. I downloaded an item that says "Word document of the cards", but that document doesn't look anything like yours. Is there a way you could send me the cards? You can email me at . Thanks for all of your great ideas!!
