Transformations Matching Cards
Posted on December 14, 2011 at 6:10 pm by Lisa
In my Advanced Algebra 2 class, we discussed the rules for transforming equations (shifts, compressing/stretching and reflections). Tomorrow is our last day before Winter Break (staff still has to go Friday), so rather than give practice problems that won’t get done, I put together matching cards. I wrote 6 equations that are transformed from a base function, graphed them on the TI-84 and screen captured them, and wrote the description of how the new graph was transformed from the original. I did 5 sets. Then I put codes in the corner of each card (F#, G#, D#).
My students got through 2 of the 5 sets in class today (over about 35 minutes or so). We will do the 3 sets they didn’t get to the day they return from break. Actually, this will work out nicely, for it will get them back into the swing of things with what we left off with.
