Reflection: Intervention and Extension Transforming Functions Day 2 of 2 - Section 3: Using algebra to prove the transformations of inverses


Many times students get confused when a problem has numerous parameters. For today's lesson I write an equation like y= 4+3(x-2)^2 and ask the student to solve for x. I work through the problem with the student. I also write out in words the process discussed and chosen by the student. I then watch the student start the problem given in class. 

By writing out the steps the students have a good reference to use as they solve the more abstract problem.

Transforming Functions Day 2 of 2

Unit 2: Functions and Piecewise Functions
Lesson 13 of 15

Objective: SWBAT use transformations to write the inverse of a function when given the original function.

Big Idea: Using transformations is another way to find an inverse of a function.
