Student Outcomes

  • Students recognize and use parent functions for linear, absolute value, quadratic, square root, and cube root to perform vertical and horizontal translations.  They identify how the graph of y = f(x) relates to the graphs of y = f(x) + k and  y = f(x + k) for any specific values of k, positive or negative, and find the constant value, k, given the parent functions and the translated graphs.  Students write the function representing the translated graphs.
