## 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.
