Evaluating our Definitions: Equations and Functions

  • After reviewing your classmates post, would you alter your definition? Why or why not? Would you provide different examples?

I would alter my definition of equation a little. I would state that an equation could contain a variable. Equations do not always have to have variables. I still like the examples that I used. Pictures help me visualize what the word means.

  • How can you evaluate whether or not your students grasped the difference between the two?

If I asked the students to show me examples of the concepts of equation and function, I would be able to see if they grasped the difference between the two. Sometimes it is hard for students to put their understanding of concepts down in words. I am going to add on my tests this year that they may define or show by example the understanding of vocabulary.
