Algebra 2 – Transforming Function Graphs 9/11/12

Skills Quiz Wednesday on Finding Inverses of Functions using Equations.

Flashbacks for this week: (Quiz Friday!)

Began investigation on transforming functions – How can changing part of the equation change the graph?

Students were assigned to a blue, red or yellow group. 

Work individually to record patterns/changes they see in the graphs.

Students may use an online graphing calculator to complete.  For radical type sqrt(x) and absolute value abs(x).

Pair & Share – to ensure correct patterns were recognized.

Within groups of 3 (blue, red & yellow) – compare and contrast the transformations – considering different function families.
