#### Activity Overview

Students will understand patterns, relations, and functions.

#### Before the Activity

Provide each student with a copy of the attached .pdf document.

#### During the Activity

Students will:

• Graph a polynomial function in Y1.
• Use a variation of function notation in the register to perform transformations on Y1, including vertical and horizontal shifts and reflections across x- and y- axes..
• Examine the table of the original function compared to the transformation to articulate how the function changes.
• #### After the Activity

• Review student answers.
• As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
• Re-teach concepts as necessary
