3.0
Understands that a function is a rule that assigns to each input (domain) exactly one output (range). Understands the concepts behind rate of change, average rate of change, and initial value for a linear function with regards to the given situation it models.
You need to be able to identify the domain and range when given a function, calculate average rate of change of a function over a specified interval. Also estimate rate of change from a graph.
2.0
Terms to know: function, domain, range, ordered pair, linear function, nonlinear function, rate of change, and slope. Also knows the difference between a relation and a function.
You are able to define and given an example of the terms: function, domain, range, ordered pair, linear function, nonlinear function, rate of change, and slope. Also, categorizes graph, table, mapping, equation as a relation or a function.

Proficiency Level 2

This link will help you understand what a linear function is.
Understanding Linear Functions

The next link will help you understanding domain and range. The examples are difficult, but just focus on the definitions.
Understanding Domain and Range

This video will give you a refresher on linear functions, as well as understanding when a function is non linear.
Nonlinear Functions

The following article shows examples of rate of change and slope.
Understanding Slope

Lastly we will be looking at the difference between relation and function. We are going to be taking the information we have learned and applying it.
