# Lesson 6 Another Day Solidify Understanding

## Jump Start

Which One Doesn’t Belong? Examine each function and determine which one is not like the others. Be prepared to give a mathematical reason for your choice.

## Learning Focus

Write and graph equations of functions.

Compare the graphs of related functions.

What is the effect on the graph when a number is added to an equation of a function?

## Open Up the Math: Launch, Explore, Discuss

Every day when Rashid’s mother comes home from work, he asks her how her day was and she says, “Another day, another dollar.” Being a mathematical thinker, Rashid started imagining the function that would model his mother’s saying. His thinking went something like this:

“On day

On day

On day

One day

Rashid visualized this graph of the function:

### 1.

Model the function that describes this pattern with a table and explicit equation.

As Rashid pursued this thinking, he wondered what would happen to his function if he started with

### 2.

Model this situation with a table, graph, and explicit equation.

### 3.

Compare the graph in problem 2 to Rashid’s original graph. What do you notice?

Rashid thought about all the bills that his family needed to pay and wondered what the function would be if the situation changed so that on day

### 4.

Write the explicit equation and graph the function that models this situation.

### 5.

Compare the three graphs and equations. What do you notice?

Rashid thought, “A dollar a day is no way to get ahead. What if I start with

Parent function:** **

Vertical translation:

## Vocabulary

- parent function
- transformations on a function (rigid)
- vertical shift
**Bold**terms are new in this lesson.

## Lesson Summary

In this lesson, we learned that adding or subtracting a number to a function results in a vertical translation of the graph. In a vertical translation, functions do not change their shape, they are simply shifted up or down.

Solve the equation.
