These notes can be used for an introduction to square root functions. The notes provide a space for students to create a graph, table and explanation of the type of transformation.
There are six pages of guided notes that can help students explore the differences between the parent function and various square root functions.
Students compare the new function to the parent function. They can identify if the new graph is a vertical stretch or shrink, a reflection or a translation. Answer keys are included.
An additional page of guided notes is provided on transformations. It provides information on translations, vertical stretches, vertical shrinks and reflections.
