It is a riddle worksheet where students have an answer bank and they use that to solve a (slightly cheesy) joke. Kids like this activities because they make the math meaningful, and FUN, and teachers like them because the answer bank gives students a tool to self-assess.
Because of answer banks for students and answer sheets for adults, this activity is great for homeschool and special ed students too!
It is also part of my transformations packet
In this worksheet, students are given 4 parent functions (cubic, quadratic, absolute value, exponential) and 16 examples of different transformations in function form (i.e. f(x+2)= or -f(x)=) and asked to match each transformation to the graph. The material includes vertical and horizontal transformations as well as reflections across the x-axis and the y-axis. Students solve a riddle in the process.
