Transformations of Functions

I love to use Keynote Magic Move to have students create a GIF illustrating how translations can affect the parent function! I have a template (attached below) that I AirDrop to them. They will graph the parent function on each slide, then add a Magic Move transition to slide the parent function to the correct position based on the function.

What would you add to this project in your classroom?

For more ideas/tips, feel free to download my free resource from the Apple Book Store with more instruction and information! Here is the link:

The book contains multiple examples for math classes, but the projects can easily be adapted to any subject!

What a great idea, Eileen! Magic Move can be such a useful resource in the math classroom. I could see my elementary students using this transition to classify shapes, simplify expressions, and so much more! I also love how Keynote allows our students to record audio to justify their reasoning. Thank you for sharing and sparking inspiration!

What a great example, Eileen! 🤩 When I see lesson ideas like this, I always think “I was *wish* I had access to resources like this when I was in school!”. Such an engaging way to help students learn and for them to see Math in action, rather than just on a static page. 👏 Wonderful work!
