Math 181 : Transformations of a Graph

Math 181: Transformations

This applet illustrates the transformations of the graph of a "parent" function f(x) which can be entered. The sliders control the parameters which determine transformations.
Horizontal Changes: First shift then compress/stretch: h --> horizontal shift (by h units) a --> horizontal stretch/compression by factor of a (& horizontal reflection if negative) Vertical Changes: First compress/stretch, then shift: b --> vertical stretch/compression by factor of b (& vertical reflection if negative) k --> vertical shift (by k units)
