Created this today and one very similar yesterday.

Like I’ve previously written, I really want my Calculus students to have a solid grasp on the most common functions and function transformations. Three days in, and I think I’m getting somewhere.

What do you think of this worksheet? It’s very open-ended. I’m letting the students work together and really talk out what they *think* is happening with the graph. Some of them go straight to a table of values. That’s great, too, because then they’re are seeing the Numerical aspect of the “Rule of 4.” Others are trying to just remember what each change to the algebraic form of the function does to the graph – some with success and some without. But overall, this worksheet model is making the kids think about the things I want them to be thinking about. A victory, I’m counting it as.
