Abstract

The development of the concept of function is considered important by leaders in the field of mathematical education. This study includes some graphic techniques which are believed to be useful in the development of the function concept and is limited primarily to those which are thought to be particularly useful to prospective teachers of secondary school mathematics.

This study is not intended to be inclusive but rather suggestive of some procedures which might be adapted to the development of the function concept in the teaching of secondary school mathematics. Some of the techniques of graphing discussed here may not be applicable directly in the secondary school program but they should all aid the prospective teacher in understanding the concept of function.
