Lesson 17 Student Outcomes

Students examine that a vertical translation of the graph of y = f(x) corresponds to changing the equation from y = f(x) to y = f(x) + k.

Students examine that a vertical scaling of the graph of y = f(x) corresponds to changing the equation from y = f(x) to y = kf(x).

Lesson 18 Student Outcomes

Students examine that a horizontal translation of the graph of y = f(x) corresponds to changing the equation from y + f(x) to y = f(x - k).
