Submitted by: Kurt Cogswell on Jul 27, 2004
Date Last Modified: Jul 27, 2004
Title: Interpreting Transformations of Functions
Description: This assignment was created by Nicole McGlashan of Huron High School, Huron, South Dakota. It describes a self-directed activity for students to practice finding the transformations of functions by comparing the function to the graph of the intial function. There is a link to the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives for Interactive Mathematics and Larry Green's interactive website that the students participate in.
Type of Task: Individual, Student-centered, Supplemental activity, Team, Unsupervised
Topics: Transformations of functions and the related transformation of function graphs.
Course: Algebra II , Advanced Algebra , Pre-Calculus , Trigonometry
Audience: College General Ed, High School
Prerequisites Skills: To successfully complete this lesson, the students should be familiar with: Algebraic manipulation of equations; Solving radical equations; Solving rational equations; Solving absolute value equations.

Graphs of polynomials, radical, rational, and absolute functions
Learning Objectives: After having completed this lesson the student should be able to determine the initial graph of a function and be able to determine the transformations of its graph that result from transformations of the function.
