\(-2\) | \(3.25\) |

\(-1\) | \(3.5\) |

\(0\) | \(4\) |

\( 1\) | \(5\) |

If you were to describe a pattern, what would it be?

What might the next entry in the table be?

If an \(x\) value is 5, what would the \(y\) value be?

Would you describe the pattern as linear, exponential or quadratic? Explain your thinking. How might you convince a classmate?
