Desmos Art Project

For this project, you are going to show off your understanding of function transformations, and your skills with the Desmos Graphing Calculator. Your assignment: create a piece of art using function transformations on Desmos.

Parent functions we have studied:

Linear                                         

Exponential                                

Absolute value                        

Quadratic                                

Square root                                

Cubic                                        

Cube Root                                

Parent functions we have not studied, but you can use them if you want to have some extra fun:

Sine                                        

Rational                                

You may also use these, but they don’t count as parent functions:

Horizontal lines                         is a real number

Vertical lines                                 is a real number
