# Scavenger Hunt - Families of Functions (Parent Function Transformation)

Product Description
Have you seen the preview?

This activity will allow students to move around the room. There are 16 cards with 16 different problems assessing the understanding of Transformations of Parent Functions, i.e.; Families of Functions. There are 4 parent functions used in this scavenger hunt. Also, there are 7 type of transformations applied to these parent functions. Only one transformation is applied at a time to the parent function.

The 4 Parent Functions used in this activity are:

• Linear Parent Function
• Absolute Value Parent Function
• Square Root Parent Function

Transformations used in this activity:

• Horizontal Translation (Right and Left)
• Vertical Transformation (Up and Down)
• Reflection across the x-axis
• Stretching
• Compressing

Each question provides a parent function f(x) and ask to apply one of the above transformations to this parent function. The result is going to be a transformed function g(x). Students will walk around the room looking for that particular function. This activity helps students to read a given notation (rule) of a function and get an idea about the meaning of the numbers in that notation. Students will feel better after this activity as they understand the concept better while working as a team.

How to play?

After you assign the first card, students will locate the card around the room and answer the question on the card. Then, after solving the question with their partner (or group or individually), student will find the answer as it is placed on another card around the room. Then, student will answer the question on that card repeating the process. Students will utilize the Scavenger Hunt Answer form to keep a record of their answers as well as their sequence. I will strongly encourage that student show work and attach it to the answer form.

I have attached a visual organizer of the findings which would help in checking out the sequence quickly. It is an "A"wesome card which could be given to every student. You may choose to print 1 per page or 4 per page. Both printing options are included in this product.

This activity is a great tool for differentiation. It could be used as a review before a quiz or a test on this topic, TASK CARDS, Cooperative Learning, ... et .. It is a great way of "Cooperative Learning". It also could be used as a formative assessment.

In addition to the Scavenger Hunt file, you'll find an answer form to be used by students as well as an answer key. Don't forget to check the preview.
