Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Function Machines – Complete two-step function tables

For these problems, students follow rules presented in words and with symbols to complete two-column function tables. Each of the rules requires two computational steps. Problems 1-12 use addition followed by subtraction. Problems 13 -20 mix the sequence of addition then subtraction and subtraction then addition.
