I just wanted a quick post to share the documents I created to teach function transformations. All documents are in .doc format. They aren’t flashy, but they really got students thinking about everything. (This is a regular Algebra II class.) They nailed the final assessment, and are now doing amazingly on transformations of exponential functions. In other words, I see my work as a success.
Function Transformations 1 BASIC INTRODUCTION (here): HW (here)
Function Transformations 2 UP! DOWN! LEFT! RIGHT! (here): HW1 (here) , HW2 (here & here)
Function Transformations 3 VERTICAL STRETCHING (here): HW (here)/ Solutions (here)
Function Transformations 3.5 PRACTICING THINGS STEP BY STEP (here)
Function Transformations 4 HORIZONTAL STRETCHING (here): HW (here) / Solution (here)
Also I handed this practice sheet out to all students to practice their 8 base functions (here).
Just so you know, I don’t always teach via handouts. But with all this graphing, I decided it made good sense.
I’m happy if you want to critique them, or make suggestions on how to improve them.
