Translations of Functions

This worksheet will help show the relationship that values have on translating a function. Specifically we will look at a quadratic function. Use the sliders for 'a' and 'b' to control the values in the equation. Pay attention to how these values transform the graph.
How do the constants a and b effect the graph of a function given the equation f(x+a)+b? (or in this case f(x)=(x+a)^2+b)
