Introduction to Parent Functions

I've seen parent functions introduced in different forms at different high schools and I attempted to incorporate the best of what I'd seen into our coursework by having each group create an introduction to their parent function and then share it with the class. It was a great way for students to learn what was expected of them when they worked together as a group and for students to start understanding what it would be like for us to interact with the group.

When asked if something was correct I would ask the students if they thought it was correct and if they had shared it with their group members. This was a very different approach to instruction then what they had previously experienced but the result was that they eventually started working as a team and they started relying on themselves rather than just the instructor.
