Move Move Function Girl

This past school year I posted a blog on dance dance transveral an idea I got from a blog by Jenn. My students and I loved this activity so much that I started to think of different ways that I could use this kind of movement in my classroom to get the students active and interested in class. 

I have created an activity very similar to dance dance transveral that allows students to move their arms in a way that will create the parent and reflected functions we discuss in class. 

Have you seen my blog on Function Girl???

I have used these images to create the activity Move Move Function Girl. This activity is just like Jenn's expect students will be practicing their functions instead of angles. 

I have included a few different powerpoints in hopes that you can use these for your classes. I know each class discusses different functions and so if you need different functions I'll be happy to make some new powerpoints if you can leave a comment or send me a tweet with which functions your course uses. Right now I have one for Math 1 and Math 2.

Math 1 includes: Linear, Expoential, and Quadratic
Math 2 includes: Quadratic, Radical, and Rational

I usually teach advanced functions in the beginning of each school year so I'm sure I'll be adding that one soon with Exponential, Logarithmic, and Trigonometric functions. Then maybe a seperate one with review functions just parent not the reflected so I can get them all on the screen. Those would probably be Linear, Quadratic, Cubic, Radical, Rational, and Absolute Value. 

If you would like to download any of these resources you can find them below.

Math 2 - Shake It Off Video

I used Powerpoint to make them and then just saved as a video file
