Name That Parent Function!

Name That Parent Function!  An quick activity to help students recognize parent functions - download powerpoint   mrseteachesmath.blogspot.com

I like to use this powerpoint as a quick activity to help my students recognize parent functions.  

I usually ham it up a little and pretend like it’s a game show (think: Name That Tune!).  I have a pretend microphone and I get it out when we do this.  Yep, my students always roll their eyes.

Anyway, I get out my whiteboards and have my students write the answer and hold it up as we go through the powerpoint.  That helps me quickly check their answers and give feedback if needed.

The first section of the powerpoint gives a graph and the students name the parent function.
