Students will experiment with transformations, applying vertical and horizontal shifts to functions represented using tables, equations and graphs. The Take-home Message: Vertical and horizontal shifts can be performed on any function given its equation, table or graph. Vertical shifts are applied to the y-values while horizontal shifts are applied to x-values. This mission is aligned with Common Core State Standards: HSF.BF.B.3.
The fun stuff:
Vertical and horizontal shifts provide a powerful introduction to transformations. The mission explores these transformations through equations, tables and graphs of various functions to ensure students get a rich experience of transformations from a variety of perspectives. Facility with transformations enable students to create more complex models going forward.

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
