## Transformations

There are four types of transformations that we will be looking
at in this section. Click on the topic below to link to the discussion
of each of these.

**1. Vertical and
Horizontal Translations**

**2. Veritcal Stretches
and Compressions**

**3. Horizontal
Stretches and Compressions**

**4. Reflections**

To look at these, we will use the parent function of f(x) =
|x|. In the homework, you will look at transformations involving
the functions, f(x) = x^2 and f(x) = sqrt (x).

Remember, that these transformations to do not occur in a vacuum.
It is possible to have more than one transformation at a time.
