Assignment checking the ability to graph square root and cube root functions by translating the parent function and solving for x- and y-intercepts algebraically. I teach my students to use the "base points" [ (0, 0), (1, 1), and (4, 2) or (-1, -1) for square/cube root] and then transform them using (h, k) or vertex form. They also must be able to determine transformations and equations from a graph included in a matching section. The assignment also has real-world word problems at the end. I also have corresponding notes of the same name.
*Note: This assignment is lengthy for non-honors classes, so you could split it into two assignments if you teach the material in two classes, or you could use it as a cumulative review for both days.
