Domain and Range Intervention!

Domain and Range in Special Ed Algebra 2


A few days ago I foolheartedly wrote a post called "Learning About Domain and Range" all about the great domain and range learning that would soon be happening in my classroom. Eeeert, stop the record! Abandon ship! Abandon ship!


Domain and Range scavenger hunt

My plan today was to give a Domain & Range scavenger hunt to assess student understanding, but we're going to need a little more practice first. Seeing domain and range - especially range - of a graph is proving to be particularly difficult for my students this year. Assessing now didn't seem fair. To give a bit more practice before grades, I made these extra domain and range practice cards.



Students find the domain and range of each of 10 graphs. Then, they need to decide whether each graph is a function or not. This was also a good spiral review for function/not a function. I printed  the cards you see in the picture on blue paper and set a stack on each student table to share. Each student got his or her own student answer sheet. I saw a lot of good work that made me really hopeful! I think their confidence improved, too:)

Domain & Range as... decor?
Absolutely! How fun would it be to finalize a unit on domain and range with a domain & range pennant activity that doubles as class decor? Kids LOVE seeing their work hanging in the classroom and the constant reminder that "Yes, look! We CAN!" is a great confidence boost!

  1. I like the Domain and Range Task Cards, that will be a fun activity for kids and an easy tool to help them remember how to visualize and denote D and R. Nice!

    1. Thanks! Seeing Domain and Range on a graph is the hardest for my students so this gave them a little extra practice on a Friday when motivation was at a week-low. HA! They were practicing without practicing:)

  2. Love this. I so know how it feels to not have everything go as planned. Will definitely use these when we get to domain and range. What a treat!

    Cheers,

    1. You'd think this being my 4th year teaching this class that I'd be able to anticipate what kids will need. Nope! Every year is totally different!

    1. Yes, this year especially for me. I swear if I break it down any further I'll be at the molecular level. But it's gotta happen and it's pushing me to be better! I love your stuff too! :)
