AN01 and RF02 Activities


 Absolute Value Project from Heather Kohn  Ask students to guess the number of items in a container. Collect the estimates from the class and then compare to the actual value. This data will give you an absolute value graph to discuss.
 Absolute Value Translations on Desmos Activity Builder  In this activity, students use a blended approach (paper and pencil, as well as Desmos) to explore the effects of horizontal and vertical translations on absolute value graphs.
 Absolute Value Marbleslides Activity on Desmos Activity Builder  Total imitation of the Marbleslides activities created by the Desmos team  Just with Absolute Value equations.
RF11 Activities
 Reciprocal Function Investigation on Desmos Activity Builder from David Petro  This is meant to be an introductory activity when looking at reciprocal functions of linear and quadratic functions. This is part of a larger unit on rational functions from David.
