-Graphing transformations of the graph

**Part 1: Exploring a, h, and k.**1. Re-set the sliders so that

*a*=1 and

*h*and

*k*are zero. What is this graph? 2. Move only the slider for

*a*. How does the graph change as

*a*changes? 3. Re-set

*a*to one by clicking "Values for 1/x" and slide only the slider for

*h*. How does the graph change as

*h*changes? 4. Re-set

*h*to zero and slide only the slider for

*k*. How does the graph change as

*k*changes?

**Part 2: Matching a Graph to an Equation**1. Copy the equation at the top of the screen onto your worksheet. 2. Move the sliders for

*a, h,*and

*k*until your graph matches the equation at the top of the screen. If your values are correct, the word "Great!" will appear on your screen. 3. Record the values of

*a, h,*and

*k*for the graph onto your worksheet. 4. Record the horizontal and vertical asymptotes of the graph onto your worksheet. 5. Describe the change from the graph of

**Part 3: Follow-Up Questions and Homework**Answer the follow-up questions provided in your packets before class tomorrow.
