Instructions for Use

Function Machine allows students to fill in the remaining numbers on a chart, once the function machine has spit out its number pattern.

Introduce the idea of using negative integers in number patterns.

To use Function Machine, drag and drop the four blue numbers, one-at-a-time, into the function machine. The function machine automatically spits out a number pattern into a chart. Students then fill in the blanks, and hits "Enter" to solve the rest of the pattern.
