Transformations of Parent Functions & Graphing Polynomials

Parent Function Transformations

There are four major types of transformations we study in Algebra 2. For us, these types of functions are helpful for using when modeling the real world around us, like throwing a football or measuring how quickly the tires on our car is rotating so we don’t get a speeding ticket. The video below will help you transform parent functions to meet specific criteria.

Graphing Higher Order Polynomials

Using our understanding about finding zeros of polynomials and patterns that exist for higher order polynomials, we can make rough sketches of polynomials based on their factored equations. This video will help explain the logic behind graphing higher order polynomials.
