In Geometric Functions activities students create, manipulate, and experience function concepts by treating geometric transformations as functions with points as their variables.
Students explore and describe relationships between point variables, distinguish between independent and dependent variables, and use examples and non-examples to formulate their own definitions of function.
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.
