Translating Quadratic Functions:

In this lesson, students will investigate the changes to the graph of a quadratic function when the function is modified in four different ways by inclusion of an additive or multiplicative constant. Students will work in groups to graph quadratic functions, prepare a display of their functions, and determine how the modification affects the graph of the quadratic function. Then, students participate in a gallery walk, where members of each group will share their findings with a small group of students. At the end, there is a class discussion to see if everyone had similar findings and to solidify the knowledge of translating quadratic functions.
