Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on Transformations of a Square Root Function, the instructor explains how to determine the transformations of a given function. The lesson covers various possible transformations including stretching or compressing, shifting left or right, shifting up or down, and reflecting about the X or Y-axis. By determining the values of A, H, and K, the instructor shows how the graph of the function can be shifted or reflected. The lesson emphasizes the importance of understanding the direction of the shift and how to correctly identify the values of A, H, and K.

Lesson Description:

Describing the transformations of a square root function

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
