You have 4 minutes, using a few numbers and operations to get a variety of answers on the calculator. You'll have to use your knowledge of order of operations and basic facts.
Try to figure out the function. Either you or the computer will input a number, then wait to see what comes out of the function machine. After 2 trys, you will get a chance to guess what the function is (rule by which the number is changed each time, ex. x2 or +3).
Practice Problems
