In Geometric Functions activities students create, manipulate, and experience function concepts by treating geometric transformations as functions with points as their variables.
Students solve puzzles by dragging independent variables while observing the behavior of dependent variables.Each page contains four functions, and students use their observations of behavior to determine which function belongs to a different family from the other three.
In this activity students will:
(1) Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; (2) Reason abstractly and quantitatively; (3) Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others; (5) Use appropriate tools strategically; (6) Attend to precision; (7) Look for and make use of structure; (8) Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
