Parabola Transformations


Running through files this afternoon, I ran across this one.  Basically, you give a screen shot to students with a variety of parabolas or other type of function graphs.   Their task is to come up with the equations that will result in the given picture.  One of the screens is blank…they create their own picture and give the equations needed to create their design.

As I think about this, maybe I could use it as LHP assignment.  Students sketch their screen on top of an index card and include their equations underneath.  We could do a peer share/assess maybe.  Other ideas of how to use it are welcomed.
