Transforming the absolute-value function

Play with sliders to see how the absolute-value function is transformed. The black graph is the parent function and the purple graph is the transformed graph. For the parent function, a=1, h=0, and k=0 "a" will stretch, compress, or reflect the parent function "h" will shift the parent function to the left or right "k" will shift the parent function up or down
Move the sliders for a,h, and k to get an understanding of how the absolute-value function can be transformed.
