Function Family Album & Scrapbook
This project covers the following
standards
:
MM1A1. Students will explore and interpret the characteristics of functions, using graphs, tables, and simple algebraic techniques.a. Represent functions using function notation.b. Graph the basic functions f(x) = x
n
where n = 1 to 3, f(x) =x, f(x) =x, and f(x) = 1/x.c. Graph transformations of basic functions including vertical shifts, stretches, and shrinks, as well as reflections across the x- and y-axes.d. Investigate and explain the characteristics of a function
:
domain, range, zeros, intercepts, intervals of increase and decrease, maximum and minimumvalues, and end behavior.e. Relate to a given context the characteristics of a function, and use graphs and tables to investigate its behavior.
Goal
:
Create a scrapbook for six function families. Your scrapbook will include detailed graphs, characteristics, theeffects of transformations, and tables of values.A family photo album tells the visual story of a family.Your album will tell the visual story of 6 families

RationalBecause each function is the
parent
of a
family
, youwill also investigate the functions
children
. For example, linear functions have 3children, shown below
:
So, there you have it
:
make a family album for all 6
families
, including listing their
children
and everyones
statistics
.Refer to the rubric to learn how to complete the project.[This project is a
metaphor
, which is language that connects unrelated subjects. The metaphor here is that everyfunction is described as a
family
using the language of families to help you understand functions. America is a meltingpot is an example of a metaphor.]

This vertical stretchincreases the slope of the line by
2
This vertical shift of +3 increasesthe y-intercept by 3.

If I were a function, Iwould be approximately
f(x) = -2x
