Description

This activity was originally created for a Women in Mathematics course to provide the students with a small taste of some basic mathematics connected to the work of Ingrid Daubechies on wavelets. The activity could also be used in a high school algebra or college algebra course to motivate transformations of functions, in particular, translation (shifting) and scaling. The functions used are a basic quadratic x2, the exponential function ex , and the sine function, but other functions could be used to fit the level of the students.
