ab: Summary: When teaching transformations of functions, teachers typically
have students vary the coefficients of equations and examine the
resulting changes in the graph. This approach, however, may lead
students to memorise rules related to transformations. Students need
opportunities to think deeply about transformations beyond superficial
observations about changes in the graphs. In this article, the authors
describe an activity in which upper secondary school students used
graphing calculators in cooperative learning groups to analyse and
create motifs found in traditional Turkish rugs. The activity centres
on transformations of functions. It encourages students to make
connections between original and transformed graphs and to think deeply
about the effect on the graph of changing a parameter. (ERIC)
