Reflection: Modeling Transformations of Parent Functions - Section 3: Exit Slip

 

Technology helps make this lesson a success.  It allows me to model several examples of transformations from the Parent Functions, which would not have been possible by hand.  It also provided a colorful visual for students to see the repeated reasoning (MP8) in order to recognize how the structure of the equation (MP7) is related to the graph.  Students would not have recognized this structure as easily with less examples.  The technology helped with the pacing of the lesson, allowing me to get several examples done within the time limit of the class.  This is difficult with more complex time consuming problems.

Transformations of Parent Functions

Unit 1: Introduction to Functions
Lesson 10 of 13

Objective: SWBAT identify the transformations of some Parent Functions developed from the formula f(x)=a(x-h)^2 + k for quadratics.

Big Idea: To develop an understanding for the transformations of parent functions through repeated reasoning (MP8) and the structure (MP7) of the equation.
