Core Competency – Pre Calc 12 #1

In Pre Calculus 12 we just finished the transformation unit. This unit has helped my improve my critical thinking, this happened when I had to pay attention closely to where the translation, reflection or stretch was so that I could apply it to the function. I would have to focus and remember if the number was placed in a certain place in the function it meant something specific and I would need to figure what it was so that I could correctly do that question, this took a lot of practice and focus. My creative thinking skills improved this unit because I would have to problem solve when I didn’t understand something and would think about it in a different way so I would be able to. My communication skills improved this unit as well when I would go into class early and ask Mr Muro questions or when I would ask my classmates questions or clarification on questions or concepts.
