By the end of this tutorial, students will be able to graph the horizontal translation of the absolute value function.
Students will be able to identify the vertex, pre-image, and image.
Students will be able to identify the new vertex using the y = |x - h|
This tutorial introduces students to graphing a translation of the absolute value function.
Take notes from the video/screen shots.
ABSOLUTE VALUE: The distance from a number to zero on the number line
IMAGE: The resulting graph after the transformation.
PRE-IMAGE: The original graph before any transformations
TRANSFORMATION: Any change in size, orientation, and/or location of a function or shape
TRANSLATION: A slide of a function to the left/right, and/or up/down
VERTEX: The point where the slope of a graph changes direction from positive to negative or negative to positive
