The Shifting Properties Example Sheets were created by Pupsaroni Puzzles for use in an Algebra 1 or Algebra 2 classroom for studying how changing an equation changes or "shifts" a graph. This set of example sheets takes four of the most basic functions studied in Algebra 1, and shows how they all are affected by the shifting properties. Functions shown are the linear function, the quadratic function, the absolute value function, and the cubic function. For each shifting property covered, there is a page that shows the effect on each of those parent functions with a small explanation at the top of the page. The properties covered are using a negative to "flip" the function, using a number in front of the function to make it fatter or thinner, using numbers within the function to make it shift left or right, and using numbers at the end of a function to shift it up or down. Each graph that has been shifted is on the same coordinate plane as its parent function so the difference in shifting can be seen. These work well as bulletin board posters, self-help handouts for students, study materials, or teaching materials.
