### 1.

You have two sets of cards, A cards and B cards.

Lay out all the A cards. Each A card gives you a representation of a function.

Select a B card and read each statement aloud.

Find an A card that matches all 5 statements on the B card and justify each statement.

Record the match and your justification for it.

Keep the pairs together for the next part of the lesson.

Proceed until all the A and B cards are matched. Be sure that you can justify all 5 statements on the B card with the function that you match it with.

A card | B card | Reason |
---|---|---|

A1 matches with: | ||

A2 matches with: | ||

A3 matches with: | ||

A4 matches with: | ||

A5 matches with: | ||
