Day 3 Notes: Graphing Absolute Value Functions
Block: _____ Date:_______
Today…
 You will be able to graph Absolute Value Equations
 You will be able to describe the shift from the parent function based on the
equation given
 You will be able to determine the equation of an Absolute Value graph
The graph of an absolute value function is always ____________________ and
_______________________.
General Form for an Absolute Value Function:
h = ______________________
k = ______________________
a = ___________________________
The __________________________ is the point at which the graph changes direction.
The __________________________ is the imaginary VERTICAL line that cuts the
graph into two identical parts.
1.) y  x
2.) y  x  3
