Know math vocabulary:
translation
transformation
parent function
Know:
f(x) notation
formula f(x)=a|x - h|+k
Understand how the parts of the transformation equation effect the look of the graph through geometer sketchpad exploration.
What do changes in &quot;a&quot;, &quot;h&quot; &amp; &quot;k&quot; look like when
you graph an absolute value function?

Do&shy;be able to graph any transformation/translation of an absolute value function using the parent function and the formula f(x)=a|x - h|+k.

To graph an absolute value function...
1. First identify the parent function.
2. Then graph the new vertex (h,k).
3. Generate points for the parent function using x = 1, &shy;1, 2, &shy;2.
4. Apply the vertical stretch (a) to the y coordinate of the parent function points.
5. Graph these points starting from the vertex (h,k) rather than the origin because you have moved the whole graph to this position (translated it).

Graph these absolute value functions:
More equations...
1. f(x)=|x+3|-2
2. f(x)=|x-1|+3
3. f(x)=-|x+1|+2

Graph these absolute value functions:
1. f(x)= 2|x - 4|-2
2. f(x)=3|x+2|- 4
