A template of the talk frame was used to plan a lesson for algebra students learning about composite functions. Students are given a problem in which they make a weekly salary, plus commission, two functions, and two possible function compositions to represent the commission. The Think section provides the question, along with two additional parts, and the Talk Idea section presents the possible realizations about the functions. Argumentation language is used through the construction of the student solution.
