Toothpicks and Transformations

Students investigate quadratic functions using geometric toothpick designs. They review transformations of quadratic functions-vertical and horizontal shifts, and stretches and shrinks. Students match the symbolic form of the function to the appropriate graph, then given the graphs, students analyze the various transformations and determine the equation for the functions.
