Lesson Plan: Composite Functions Mathematics • 10th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to form a composite function by composing two or more functions.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • understand the definition of a composite function,
  • recognize notation for function composition,
  • form a composite function đť‘“(đť‘”(đť‘Ą)) using two given functions đť‘“ and đť‘”,
  • form a specified composite function involving more than two functions (or by composing a single function with itself),
  • understand that, in general, function composition is not commutative,
  • find the domain and range of a composite function,
  • evaluate a composite function at a given value of đť‘Ą when given the two (or more) original functions algebraically or graphically or when relevant values of both are given.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • finding the domain and range of a function.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • finding the inverse of a function,
  • combining functions (using addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division).
