Yummy Yogurt – Write Function Rules

Notes to Teachers

Students use facts on signs to complete tables of related data. They use variables to write rules that relate Number of Scoops to Total Cost. All functions are of the form \begin{align*}y = n(a) + b\end{align*}. In that function, \begin{align*}\textbf{\textit{y}}\end{align*} represents the total cost of a cone of yogurt. The total cost is the sum of the cost of the cone or some other fixed item \begin{align*}\textbf{(\textit{b})}\end{align*} and the product of the number of scoops \begin{align*}(n)\end{align*}, which varies, and the cost of one scoop \begin{align*}\textbf{(\textit{a})}\end{align*}.
