In the activity on this webpage, learners use interactive graphing technology to investigate transformations of graphs. In the first part of the task, they look at the graph of a quadratic function with coordinates of a few points...
Teach your class how to transform a graph! By identifying the domain and range of the functions, students can observe the parabola and find the vertex of the transformed graph.
Transform your lesson for transforming functions. Scholars transform linear, quadratic, exponential, rational, and trigonometric expressions. They write their expressions to fit specific forms and identify the values of the resulting...
Patterns can be shifty! Find the pattern when shifting the graph of tangent. Pupils move the graph of tangent to different locations on the coordinate plane. They observe what happens to the function and its vertical asymptotes before...
Comparing the movement of graphs geometrically when small changes are made to the parent function motivates this collaborative discussion on the transformations of functions to their various forms. Vertical and horizontal shifts due to...
Watch this video and find out how to graph a quadratic equation when it's in intercept form! After going through the different forms of quadratic equations, an instructor leads viewers through an example problem. For the example problem,...

Explore logarithms and logarithmic regression. Young mathematicians first learn about inverse functions and about the logarithm function family. They take their newfound knowledge to use logarithmic functions to model situations and...
Why is that graph wider? Pupils learn about stretching and shrinking graphs of square root, absolute value, cubic, and quadratic functions. They study both vertical and horizontal stretches and shrinks in addition to reflections.
Students perform translation and transformation of functions. In this algebra lesson, students write the formula for the different transformation and graph given translation. They compare the change to the parent function.
