Hello Everyone,

Happy Holidays to all.

Recent posts on the forum have centered around the Fall 2013 Algebra I (Common Core) Test Sampler and the addition of piecewise functions into the Algebra I content.

I wanted to share how to perform piecewise functions on both the TI-84 Plus Family and the TI-Nspire Family of calculators as your students may use either for the new assessments.

Solution:

First for the TI-84 Plus Family:

Using the new Fraction Templates, you can divide the function by the restrictions to the piecewise function.

For students using the TI-Nspire for the Algebra I Common Core Assessment:

You can use the built in piecewise function templates. Note that on the TI-Nspire you can change the graph to display discrete data points as the rubric indicates is most correct.

Feel free to contact me directly for more assistance with "How to Graph Piecewise Functions".
