Topic 2


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.
