Instructions for Use

Function Machine allows students to fill in the t-chart after the function machine has spit out its number pattern.

To use Function Machine, drag and drop the four blue numbers, one at a time, into the "IN" area of the function machine. The function machine automatically spits out a number pattern into a t-chart. Then fill in the each blank and press the "Enter" key to solve the rest of the pattern. If a number that does not match the pattern is entered, the function machine will indicate that the number is incorrect.
