This module builds off the linear, quadratic, and exponential functions modules in Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Teachers will learn fundamental patterns of transformations, how to construct function notation for those transformations, how to graph a transformation given the algebraic form, and how to alternate between algebraic, graphical, descriptive, and numerical representations of functions.

- Teachers will understand that linear, quadratic, and exponential functions can all be transformed using the same logic and rules.
- Teachers will learn how to anticipate the graphs of functions given the algebraic, numerical, or descriptive elements.
- Teachers will learn how to factor and why that is useful for quadratic functions.

- Teachers will be able to anticipate the graphical representation of a function based on the algebraic expression of a linear, quadratic, or exponential function.

- Teachers will believe that conceptual understanding of mathematical topics is a pre-requisite of enduring academic achievement.
- Teachers will believe that introducing patterns of function properties through inquiry and problem-solving is essential to impart a deep understanding of how functions can be transformed.
- Teachers will believe that situating mathematical content within a context that is both meaningful and relevant to students is essential for students to be able to engage deeply in meaning making with content.
