Product Description
**UPDATE** I changed the tables to be in ordered pair notation. Previously, students were having trouble understanding that the tables were tables of points.

**UPDATE** I added a blank, "Classify the Transformation:" so students can practice connecting words like stretch, reflect, vertical, horizontal, shift, etc. to the actions of the graph. Also, I added a blank for identifying the domain and range of each function.

The first slide contains one graph of a monster (f(x)) and a table of values for points on that monster: (x,f(x)) On each succeeding slide, the table appears with the values you (hopefully) discovered with your students for x and f(x) and a new column for the transformation function. All the basic transformations are covered, including key slides that have the monster already transformed and values entered into the table.

The transformations covered include f(x), -f(x), f(-x), f(x)+h, f(x+h), f(x-h), f(x)-h, 1/2f(x), f(1/2x), 2f(x), f(2x).

School Spirit: You can change the color of the monster, the table header background, and the solution monsters to match your school colors (currently they are set to green and gold).

This could be printed in handout or notes format and distributed to students for paper or electronic completion.
