I'm pretty sure I got this original task from @pamjwilson but I can't find the original file or link. I found this one which is where I got the questions from.
I tried this before with my own family tree but it just brought on way too many irrelevant questions so my friend @howie_hua suggested I used the Kardashian family. I knew there was a big famous family that was obvious so thanks for helping me out.
I posted this photo in Google Classroom and had the students leave it open on their chrome books:
Numbers 6-10 is where the real meat is; here we have to discuss what comes first and where to start.
The above questioned helped them establish that order matters.
As students were writing their answers on their desk, I went around taking pictures, synced it with Google Photos, and then was able to immediately show them their classmates responses. #winning
Next we labeled index cards and baby post-its.
They are color coded on purpose- these are the three colors of baby post-its I had. Lol.
When I did it in class, we wrote the f(x) on the lined side of the index cards but then we had to keep flipping them over so I edited the slides to put the label in the top left corner.
Then I showed them a problem like this (the answer doesn't show at first):
And we talked about what color post-it to use and which index card to stick it on.
Then they would simplify it on their desk and I would click the slide to show the final answer.
Tomorrow I will follow up with this function composition match without the index cards which also throws in some square roots and putting a function inside itself and finally INB notes.
Here's the powerpoint:
