Graphs In Motion in Algebra 2

Mrs. Sklarin’s Algebra 2 class explored transformations of some familiar functions in class. Using their TI-Nspire calculators they saw the graphs move as they changed the coefficients. They developed an understanding of how each value effects the graph. (example: f(x) = a(x-h)^2 +k). The last activity on the calculator had the students manipulating the coefficients on one graph to match it with another. They had to know which value to change and by how much to change it. We had a fun time identifying and using the parent functions as we described all the transformations.
