Comparing Linear Functions: Problem 2 (Part A)

The lesson study team had imagined that some correct mathematical statements about Student A’s work would be made and that some concern about zero would be raised. The team also had foreseen that students might forget the mathematical purpose of these tabular representations, specifically when the three plans would cost the same. Student A had created one vertical table depicting all three plans. The table did not match the plans, but was mathematically correct. Additionally, Student A did include zero in their table which provided the class the opportunity to think about the insight that is gained by including zero in a table. For this investigation, zero provided the students with the information on whether or not there was a monthly fee.
