Lesson Summary:

In this lesson on quadratic transformations, the instructor teaches how to graph and describe transformations of a quadratic equation. They review different types of transformations such as vertical shift, horizontal shift, reflections, and stretching. The lesson focuses on describing the transformation of a given equation and then graphing it accordingly. The instructor also emphasizes the importance of understanding the concepts instead of memorizing them.

Lesson Description:

Graphing and describing transformations of a quadratic equation

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.

    The instructor uses an example of a quadratic function to demonstrate how the values in the function shift the graph left, right, up, or down. He also explains and demonstrates how a negative sign reflects a graph over the x or y-axis.
