How to graph a function using graph transformations?
Basic Transformations of Graphs
When graphing polynomials, basic transformations occur when a graph either shifts along the x-axis or y-axis and/or dilates. When graphing transformations, a dilation occurs when the "a" term value is changed. Dilations cause the graph to either open a different direction or change shape. A shift occurs when a graph doesn't change shape but moves along the x or y axis.
Learn how to graph transformations of a function. We'll look at vertical shifts, reflections about the x and y axis, and vertical stretching and shrinking.
