This lesson is part of my Quadratic Functions Unit
This lesson includes 3 pages of guided notes and a 2 page assignment.
Students learn about quadratic transformations and shortcuts in the order below. They will:
- Use a provided graph to write g(x) in terms of f(x), and then write its actual function
* Students should already know about function transformation rules
- Practice writing functions based off of f(x)= x^2 from descriptions of transformations (shifts, stretches, etc.)
- Practice writing functions from graphs
- Visually discover the shortcut for graphing parabolas without making tables
- Practice graphing quadratic functions (vertex form)
- Visually discover how to sketch graphs when a=2,3,4,5, etc.
- Practice graphing when a=2,3,4,5, etc.
Answer key is included!
