## Reflection: Student Ownership Introduction of Parent Functions - Section 2: Student Research Notes

Some students had a difficult time finding the notes for the Parent Functions on their own at first, but they had the resources in their hand.  Once students started finding the graphs of the Parent Functions and facts about each on different websites like Purple Math for example, they were more confident at building their own notes.  I want students to be aware that I am not their only resource, and take ownership for their own learning.

If I would have given all of the notes to the students, it would not have been as meaningful to them. As students were working, they were beginning to recognize patterns, and important points in each of the Parent Functions.
