✐ This activity is a NO PREP-SELF CHECKING activity that engage students in "Identifying the Transformation of Square Root Functions". Students will work with 12 Questions where graphs are provided. Students would need to use the graph and be able to produce the equation of the absolute function graphed. Three transformations are illustrated in this activity:
☑ Horizontal Translation
☑ Vertical Translation
☑ Reflection across the x-axis ("a" is either 1 or -1)
☑ Stretching/Compressing Vertically (By looking at a notation - not from graph)
The suggested answers are given in any of these formats:
☑ y = -√x
☑ y = √(x - h)
☑ y = √x + k
☑ y = a√x (a maybe any real number causing stretch/compress)
☑ Any combination of the above transformations
Students would need to solve the mystery Emoji by following the color key.
My students are fascinated with an additional coloring option that I have included where they could pick their own 4 colors. They have become very very creative. I am including this option in this emoji and I truly hope that your kids will love it as much as mine have.
Please, take a look at the PREVIEW before purchasing to make sure that this creative activity meets your expectations. After seeing the preview, If you would like to modify it in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me via Q and A. I will update and include a second version in this product JUST FOR YOU ☻
✶ ✶ ✶ My students truly were ENGAGED answering the questions and had a BLAST COLORING and finding the mystery picture much better than the textbook problems.✶ ✶ ✶
