Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Introduces students to the vertical line test for graphs of functions.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Enter a set of data points, then derive a function to fit those points. Manipulate the function on a coordinate plane using slider bars. Learn how each constant and coefficient affects the resulting graph.

Activity: Create graphs of functions and sets of ordered pairs on the same coordinate plane. This is like a graphing calculator with advanced viewing options.

Activity: Plot a bivariate data set, determine the line of best fit for their data, and then check the accuracy of your line of best fit.

Activity: Learn about the vertical line test for functions by trying to connect points in the plane to build a function. When you have connected all of the points, you will be told if your graph is a valid graph of a function. Vertical Line Test is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
