Periodic Function

I’ve been working on functions with Grade 10 this week and I found this blog post by Sarah (Math Equals Love) hugely helpful. Along with her post I began to think about how I could take this and apply it to periodic functions which we cover in Grade 10, a topic that my students always struggle with.

For some reason they never manage to associate the fact that the pattern (or function) repeats with the fact that they will end up at the same point every cycle. They always seem shocked and surprised when this happens.

So I came up with this little booklet which you are free to use or adapt as you see fit. The original LucidPress file is here.
