So, here goes: a Warm Up/Bell Ringer/Do Now that I'm quite proud of. It's the pre-cursor to a lesson on transformations for Pre-Calculus:

**WARM UP (Do Now)**

- Write f(1)=2 as an ordered pair.
- If you know the point (1,2) is on the graph of y=f(x), what point do you know has to be on the graph of y=f(x)+3? Why? (Hint: What is f(1) equal to?)
- What about on the graph of y=f(x+3)?

That's all I have for this week! Thanks to the wonderful people at the blogging initiative for encouraging continued writing.

I like it. The best part is number three. An addition question could be, what do you need to know to answer this question? I wonder if they've seen much of this before or not. I think the questions lead the students well toward figuring it out for themselves.
