BONUS POINTS for anyone who can effectively remind me to assign weeks for recording on the website!

EQ: What is a composition of functions?  How do we compose two or more functions and simplify the result?
In-Class: We did a Mad Minutes quiz.  Mrs. Prior checked the HW (GPC#1) and then we went over the HW answers.  We did more practice composing and simplifying functions.
Mrs. Prior handed out the new investigation in a packet.
Homework: Inv. 2 #4-6 (in new packet)

EQ: Something about horizontal translations.
In-Class: We did an activity that will continue tomorrow in class, where we had to identify equations from graphs of different parent functions. These graphs included both horizontal AND vertical translations.
Homework: Pages 10-15 in the PINK Packet due tomorrow!

In class today, we were given a new equation that was ±Af[C(x±D)]±B. Each group was given a colored sheet of paper that was considered "part" of the equation and had to write down what it meant. Part of what we learned was about horizontal transformations. Pictures to come soon, but for the part [C(x was the id o<c<1, the parent function would be stretched horizontally, if c>1, than the parent function is compressed horizontally. However, in most cases except for trig functions, the C value can be used as an A value. The ±D)] part is when it is being added, the graph translates to the left. If it's being subtracted, the graph shifts right.
For homework we were given a pink packet with graphs of certain function families and transformations to fill out. Pages 4-9 are due tomorrow.

Yesterday 11/7 in class we went over the Practice with Vertical Transformations on Function Families packet that was homework over the weekend. Mrs. Prior posted the answers on the blog. We have a full class quiz on these types of problems tomorrow 11/9.

In class we went over some portions of the packet, and how to make equations more simple in order to transform the graphs.
The EQ is:  What are the effects of A and D on the graph and table of  +/- A(F(x))+D? 
The homework is to check over the answers to the packet with the answer key on the website.
