Describing Functions Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to construct a function to describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph. The Describing Functions learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 8.F.B.5 as written in the common core national math standards.

Interpret real-world situations as functions in context. Describe the relationships qualitatively, paying attention to the general shape of the graph without concern for specific numerical values. Describe the relationships qualitatively to determine where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear, or both. Proceed from left to right and describe what happens to the output as the input value increases. From the graph alone, infer meaning from a function.
