This power point describes how graphs move from the parent functions and graphs thems.
It uses y = x, squared x, cubed x, absolute value, greatest integer function, and square root.
I use this for 2 days. I start day 1 with picking out the parent function and the transformations. There are 7 questions having the student pick out the information. There is also one question where the students need to write the equation given the transformations.
There is one slide to help understand what the greatest integer function is also.
The second day I have students graph them.
For time purposes I have only 2 problems where they graph both function and the parent function and several where they graph other functions to see what they look like. Total there are 5 graphing problems.
All steps and answers are on the power point.
I use this in Algebra II and in Precalculus. It makes graphing rational functions easier for my students to review this information.
