# Freaking Functions!

I created this game during July 2011 when I was teaching Intermediate Algebra and students were having trouble differentiating between problems that asked them to evaluate a function at a given value and problems that asked them to find a value that resulted in a function having a given value.

**Student Praise for "Freaking Functions!"**

"I like the fact that you can **work as a team **but yet it is still a competition to win the game. Also that each roll of the dice could change the outcome of the equation based on odd or even numbers."

"What I liked about the game is how it teaches you to **work with the functions**, not only to plug in the value, but also make it equal to. I also like how it’s a **fun way to learn math**."

"I liked **working as a team** to solve to win."

"I would describe this game as a** good way to sharpen your math skills**. I would tell them that once you get the hang of it, it’s **easy to play**."

"I would describe it by telling them that it is a **fun and educational** way to learn functions. If they have a hard time with this section then you would need this game. It’s very **creative way to learn math**."
