Graphic Designing with Transformed Functions

Published on 08/23/2011

Activity Overview

Create an image using transformed functions with restricted domains.

Objectives

  • Students will be able to identify a restricted domain interval and use function translations and dilations to choose and position a portion of the graph accurately in the plane to match a given quadratic graph.
  • Students will be able to identify a function and suitable domain interval that will approximate the shape of a given curve in the plane.

Vocabulary

  • function
  • domain
  • transformation

About the Lesson

This lesson involves creating an image using transformed functions with restricted domains. As a result, students will:

  • Graph functions on a TI-Nspire.
  • Restrict the domain of a function on the TI-Nspire.
  • Transform a variety of functions.
  • Restrict the domain to achieve a desired result.
