The goal of this activity is for students to observe the effect of "a" (the vertical stretch or compression) on the graphs of transformed functions. After making observations and answering critical thinking questions, they will be able to explain what causes a parent function to stretch or compress vertically. NOTE: Only parabolas are used as examples in this activity.
This activity is also included in the Algebra 2 Investigations Bundle
available in my store.
