Match That Graph! -- y=A*abs(x-B)+C

Published on 10/17/2005

Activity Overview

This activity will use the Activity Center within TI-Navigator™ to have students' race to guess the values for A, B, & C as they try to match their graph to the transformed absolute value function.

Before the Activity

The teacher must have discussed transformations of graphs prior to this activity.

During the Activity

Load the Activity Center settings file entitled MatchThatGraph.act
Each of the 10 picture files attached may be loaded as background images within TI-Navigator's Activity Center. The students can then race as they race to see who can contribute the correct equation.

After the Activity

The attached Word .doc contains the correct equation for each corresponding background image file.
