# Lesson Plan: Completing Function Tables Mathematics • 6th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to complete function tables.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• fill in missing outputs when given
• the inputs and the function rule in the form of a function machine,
• the inputs and a worded description of the function rule,
• the inputs and some outputs, without the function rule,
• work out the function rule from a set of inputs and outputs given in a function table,
• fill in missing inputs when given
• the function rule and the outputs given in a function table,
• the outputs and some inputs, without the function rule,
• solve more complex problems, such as filling in a missing output in a function table for a two-step function and completing a function table taken from a real-world context.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• simple function machines described without reference to algebraic or function notation,
• the four basic operations on numbers,
• negative integers.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• algebraic notation,
• function notation,
• rational numbers.
