Lesson 5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
October 13, 2014

Daily Learning Target I will graph and write an equation of an absolute value function I will describe the translation of the graph of an absolute value function.

5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
The absolute value function always makes a ‘V’ shape graph.

5.8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
Do you notice any patterns or rules to transform a function left or right? Horizontal Translation: f(x - h) shifts to the right f(x + h) shifts to the left Using your rule, sketch the following problems.

5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
Write an equation for each graph. 1 2 4 3

5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
Do you notice any patterns or rules to transform a function up or down? Vertical Translation: f(x) + k shifts up f(x) - k shifts down Using your rule, sketch the following problems.

5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions

5-8 Graphing Absolute Value Functions
Reflect graph across the x-axis: f(x) flips the graphs Shifts 3 to the right Shifts 2 to the left Shifts 3 to the left Shifts 2 up Shifts 1 up Shifts 2 down Reflect over x-axis Reflect over x-axis
