Functions Including Domain and Range

Three lessons including an introduction to using function notation, inverse functions and composite functions.

  • Introduction to function notation aims to familiarise students with f(x) and looks at substitution of values. Also included finding the range of a function, given its domain, which appears on the IGCSE. Complete differentiated lesson with examples and questions to display on the whiteboard. Answers included. Partial credit to TES user MrJWright, thank you.

  • Inverse functions includes rearranging formulae starter, differentiated main task and plenary where students need to create and assess their own exam questions.

  • Composite functions starts by looking at function machines so students have a visual representation of the method, then moves onto the algebraic side.
