Hey folks,

Czech out my Unit Plans page for Unit 1 of Precalculus: Functions & Parent Functions. It’s an 11 day unit covering N-Q.1-3 and F.IF.1,2,4,5,6,7 with a quiz and a test so you can mix and match the questions.  Feel free to use steal it wholesale or alter it but give me some publicity if you do!

Also thanks to Partially Derivative for the function transformations matching activity (version 2 on my dropbox so you can differentiate your learners!).
