Look at each family of functions. Write a brief description of how the equations within each family are alike and how they are different.
On one set of axes, graph "Family 1." Make a sketch of this family on your graph paper. Label each graph with this equation. Compare the graphs. Write a brief description about the graphs comparing how they’re alike and hot they are different. On one set of axes, graph "Family 2." Make a sketch of this family on your graph paper. Label each graph with this equation. Compare the graphs. Write a brief description about the graphs comparing how they’re alike and hot they are different. On one set of axes, graph "Family 3." Make a sketch of this family on your graph paper. Label each graph with this equation. Compare the graphs. Write a brief description about the graphs comparing how they’re alike and hot they are different.

Make a sketch of this family on your graph paper. Label each graph with this equation. Compare the graphs. Write a brief description about the graphs comparing how they’re alike and hot they are different. Compare the families. Write a paragraph that includes how
they are alike and how they are different. Also, discuss how changes in the equations
between the families seem to affect the graphs. Be sure to indicate specifics about the
equation that makes them seem different (numbers and where they are located, positives and
negatives and where they are located).
