This activity can be used as a classroom activity to reinforce the concept of translations of the absolute value parent function. I use the activity after we have gone through a few examples together.
The activity works best in groups of 2, but you could have them work in groups of 3 or 4 if necessary.
Pages one and two should be copied and distributed to each student. Page 3 contains functions that may or may not match the graphs on the handouts. I print page 3 on cardstock, cut, and place in a baggie to be given to students.
The PDF document includes a student worksheet, a sheet of function cards to be copied onto card stock and cut for student use, and a key for teacher use.
