Some helpful sites.

Hey everybody, I know that yesterday we didn't really find out anything new and didn't learn anything, so I went out looking for some sites to help me learn it. I found some helpful sites which explain transformations (look for stretches to make up what we were supposed to learn yesterday) in depth and hopefully make sense of the unit so far. You don't have to use these sites if you don't want to, and I hope Mr. K doesn't get mad at me for posting these sites for any reason =/ Well hope they help guys!

http://www.bmlc.ca/Principles%20of%20Math%2012%20%20-%20Transformations%20Lesson%204.pdf <-- This site contains steps for how to determine each parameter in a standard transformed function, such as stretch, shift, etc.

http://www.mathsnet.net/transform/index.html <-- Here's some interactive tools to show how all the parameters work.

http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus/0/functions.12/index.html <-- Good summary of the principles of translation.

I hope these sites can help, and I hope this kind of makes up for those classes we missed.

Way to go MrSiWwy! I think this is great! You had a problem, did some research and shared the results with the rest of us. That's the way to do it!

Ladies and gentlemen ... [applause for] MrSiWwy. ;-)
