Stretching Functions

Students learn how to transform a graph through a horizontal stretch in the form f(ax) or vertical stretch in the form a(fx).  As learning progresses they learn how to describe transformations using the correct function notation.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use function notation to perform a horizontal and vertical stretch.
  • Most students should be able to use function notation to perform a horizontal and vertwical stretch and reflection.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the transformed coordinate pairs using function notation.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
