What is absolute value? What is an absolute value function? Emerging mathematicians solve equations containing variables inside an absolute value sign. They graph each function on a coordinate plane and identify the maximum and minimum values in the graph. This two-page worksheet contains detailed notes, examples, and instruction, as well as four problems.
Use a number line to investigate integers. Explore integers, positive numbers, negative numbers, and absolute values. This resource also explores associative, commutative, and distributive properties of integers. Pupils study the product, quotient, sum, and difference of integers.
Can you translate a graph? Using the packet and its step-by-step instructions, the class is taught how to translate parent functions. They will practice translating functions graphically and algebraically. Then they shift absolute value, quadratic, and exponential graphs.
The skill set for this lesson is to have learners use tables to generate functions and functions to generate graphs. They work through a series of worksheets with the instructor to determine absolute value, domain, x and y intercept and complete transformations. All of the necessary worksheets and a homework assignment is included.
