About the Lesson

Watch Activity Tutorial

Transformations of functions apply to a whole family of curves whether they are polynomials, trigonometric or exponential. This activity provides students with a selection of data collected from bouncing balls to pendulums and capacitors. Students are provided with the appropriate primitive function and simply apply appropriate transformations using functional notation to match the data.
