Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on vertical transformations, students learn how to graph and describe the effect of adding or subtracting a constant to a function. By adding a constant, the graph shifts upward, while subtracting a constant shifts it downward. By understanding the parent graphs, students can easily calculate the exact position of the new transformed graph.

Lesson Description:

Graphing and describing a vertical transformation

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.
