Parent Functions for Learning Target 11 Who’s Yo’ Momma? (credit to my friends Mrs. Petersen and Mrs.

Fouss) Directions: For each parent function do the following: a) Fill in the values on the chart for the function. b) Plot the points onto the graph on the card stock given to you. c) Connect the points in a smooth fashion. d) Check the graph you found by graphing it in the calculator. Make sure you are in the Zoom Standard window (Zoom 6). (note: Absolute value is found by going to the MATH menu, then to NUM (use the right arrow), option 1 abs(. Square root must be typed in before the x by pressing 2 nd x2.) e) Once all 5 graphs are completed, cut out the 5 cards and place them in the baggie provided to you. You will need these for later exercises.

Parent Functions: 1) f(x) = x x -2 -1 0 1 2 3) y

2)

f(x) = |x| x -2 -1 0 1 2 y

f(x) = x2 x -2 -1 0 1 2 y

4)

f(x) = x 0 1 4 9

x
y

5)

f(x) = x3

x -2 -1 0 1 2

y

f(x) = x

f(x) = |x|

f(x) = x2

f(x) =

x

f(x) = x3
