Title: The Function Machine
Url: http://enlvm.usu.edu/ma/nav/activity.jsp?sid=nlvm&cid=4_2&lid=191
Publisher: Utah State University.
Description: Presented by Utah State University, this virtual manipulative is designed to teach the concept of a function. It does so by (1) allowing users to perform a function on various numbers; (2) presenting users with the correlating outputs based on the inputs; (3) encouraging users to generate hypotheses as to the function being applied to the inputs; and (4) allowing users to apply those hypotheses to determine whether they correctly determined the function in use. This is a great "hands on" virtual resource for middle and high school teachers, as well as teachers of developmental math courses in community and technical colleges.
