Intro to Graphing Transformations

Graphing crazy library/parent functions with stretch, flips, and vertical and horizontal shifts is pretty confusing for most students. So, in this video we'll start by applying transformations to a function everyone is already comfortable with -- parabolas (y=x2) -- to get the hang of it before moving onto other weird shapes. By the end of this video you'll be able to move a parabola up, down, left, right, inverted & stretched!
