CH 0 Graphing Functions by Berenice Base

Our project was about the different types of parent functions.On these parent functions we had to preform transformations. The type of transformations that we had to do were vertical and horizontal translations.Also reflections over the x-axis and y- axis. One of these parent function that I graphed was the quadratic graph. It is on the far left. the original parent function was y=x squared.after graphing the original graph i did a vertical translation two units up. then i did a horizontal translation two units to the right.Then i combined the two to create a vertical and horizontal translation y= (x-2) squared + 2. After this i did a horizontal reflection y=-x squared. then a vertical reflection y=x squared. finally i graphed a vertical + horizontal translation + vertical reflection.

Hi Bernice,

Instead of x squared, it's ok to use x^2.

Please describe in more detail the equation you get from doing the transformations and include the other 4 graphs

Isn't the purple graph in #3 suppose to be the same as green graph?
