Read the paper, Conceptions of function translation: Obstacles, intuitions, and rerouting, by Zazkis, Liljedahl, and Gadowsky.

1. Explain in your own words the input-output explanation for why the graph of y=(x+3)^2 is a horizontal shift three units to the left. Note that this explanation does not appear in the paper.

2. Write a half page, single-spaced reflection on the article. What you choose to reflect on from the article is up to you, but I suggest that you reflect on aspects of the reading that resonated with you, that you found most interesting or most illuminating for your own mathematical understanding.

3.   Interview a high school student, college student, high school teacher, or college instructor (basically interview one person that you would expect to know a little something about functions). Conduct your interview over zoom. Record the interview to the cloud and change you settings to get an automatically generated transcript. Use the same interview protocol as in the paper. In the paper pay close attention to the dialogue between the interviewer and the interviewee for the kind of probing questions that the interview asks. Strive to do the same in your interview.

Interview protocol

Start by inviting the participant to sketch by hand on the same coordinate system graphs of y=x^2 and y=(x-3)^2 and ask them to explain how they generated their sketch.

  • Next, invite participant to compare their sketch to that of computer generated sketches (use Desmos or another web based graphing program).
  • After they compare sketches, ask the participant to comment on the location of the graph y = (x – 3)^2 relative to the graph of y = x^2, relating, where necessary, to the discrepancy between participants sketch and the computer generated sketch, or to the discrepancy between the intuitive expectation and the “known” result.
  • If the issue did not come up naturally, ask the participant to discuss the graph of y = x^2? 3 and compare it to the graph of y = (x – 3)^2.

Write a one page max, single-spaced account of the mathematical reasoning of the person you interviewed. Use exact quotes (like they did in the paper). After summarizing their reasoning do your best to “diagnose” their reasoning and compare their response to those in the paper. 

wA shift of the graph up, down, left, or right, without changing the shape, size, or dimensions of the graph, is called a translation. (I heard this definition from Nina in my group 4) which remind me how we memorized before the rule of this events without going deeper. This motivate me rethinking about something related to this events, it is “stretch or shrink the graph” Which usually changes the shape of graph.

Adding to the input increases the function in the y direction, adding to the input decreases the function in the x direction. This is because the function must compensate for the added input. If the function outputs “7” when “3” is input, and we input x + 2, the function will output “7” when x = 1.

Examples: If f (x) = x2 + 2x, what is the equation if the graph is shifted:

4 units up f1(x) = f (x) + 4 = x2 + 2x + 4

4 units down f2(x) = f (x) – 4 = x2 + 2x – 4

4 units left f3(x) = f (x + 4) = (x + 4)2 +2(x + 4) = x2 +8x + 16 + 2x + 8 = x2 + 10x + 24

4 units right f4(x) = f (x – 4) = (x – 4)2 +2(x – 4) = x2 -8x + 16 + 2x – 8 = x2 – 6x + 8

A shift of the graph up, down, left, or right, without changing the shape, size, or dimensions of the graph, is called a translation.

To stretch or shrink the graph in the x direction, divide or multiply the input by a constant. As in translating, when we change the input, the function changes to compensate. Thus, dividing the input by a constant stretches the function in the x direction, and multiplying the input by a constant shrinks the function in the x direction.

We can understand the difference between altering inputs and altering outputs by observing the following:
If g(x) = 2f (x): For any given input, the output of g is two times the output of f, so the graph is stretched vertically by a factor of 2.
If g(x) = f (2x): For any given output, the input of g is one-two the input of f, so the graph is shrunk horizontally a factor 2.

EXAMPLE

y=f(x)

1.y=2f(x)

vertical stretch: – y-values are doubled; points get farther away from x-axis.

  1. y=f(x)/2

vertical shrink: y-values are halved; points get closer to x-axis.

  1. y=f(2x)

horizontal shrink: x-values are halved; points get closer to y-axis

y=f(x/2): – horizontal stretch; x-values are doubled; points get farther away from y-axise explain like that: 4 attachmentsSlide 1 of 4

Suggestion: consider when the output of y, is the same as the output of y,. We don’t have to think of the shift as just “the opposite of what it looks like”. We can reason that to maintain equality with the left side of the equation (the output, y) the x must get smaller by 3 to maintain the same value from before. We know 16=(4)^2 [y=x^2}, now to keep the 16, we have 16=(1+3)^2, [y=(x+3)^2], see how the x went from 4 to 1? It got smaller by 3, a shift left of 3. The quantity being squared has to stay 4. So when x changes to x+3, the x goes from 4 to 1. ker notes Ae O 39 MO Pause/Stop Recording Participants Chat Share Screen Reactions DELL F FO FB F9 F10 3 7 8 R D F G нЈ K 7. В мм Verify that L(t) = 1 – 2-0.5(t + c) is the general solution to the rate of change equation dL/dt = 0.5(1-L). Next, explain why the graph of L = 1 – e-0.5(t + 3) is a 3 unit horizontal shift left of the graph of L, = 1 – 0.5€. The solution is verified as follow: dL/dt = d/dt(1 – e-0.5(t + c)) = 0.5e-0.5(t + c) = 0.5 (1-(1 – e-0.5(t + c))) = 0.5(1-L), as desired result. We denote f(t)= 1 -e-0.5t. It is known that
