### 5.3 notes modified for slideshare

1. 1. Graphing Absolute Equations & Inequalities<br />
2. 2. Graphing on the Calculator<br /><ul><li>
3. 3. 1. Enter the formula for the function you wish to graph using the Y= editor. 2. Set the viewing window. WINDOW
4. 4. 3. Graph the function. GRAPH
5. 5. 4. Adjust the viewing window, if necessary.
6. 6.
7. 7. Example. Graph the absolute value function. This function is “built-in” and we can use it by entering its name.
8. 8.
9. 9. Step 1. Press [Y=] to display the Y= editor. Press [2ND] [0 (CATALOG)] and select “abs(“ from the menu. Next, press [ ] and [ )].
10. 10.
11. 11. Step 2. We assume the Standard window has been selected. The
12. 12. standard window is rectangular, which distorts the graph.
13. 13. ZOOM:4 will make a square window.
14. 14.
15. 15. Step 3. Press [GRAPH] to obtain the graph of the absolute value function.</li></li></ul><li>Graphing using tables<br />Look at this site for absolute value functions graphed using a table of values.<br />http://www.purplemath.com/modules/graphabs.htm<br />
16. 16. The Absolute Value “Parent Graph”<br />The “parent graph” of an absolute value function is . (See the graph at right) The vertex of the graph is the turning point and is at the origin (0, 0). The left and right sides of the graph have slopes = . <br />
17. 17. Transformations of the Graphs of the Absolute Value Function<br />The transformed graphs of an absolute value function have the equation , where the vertex of the graph is (h, k) and the slopes = . Graph each set of functions and state how the graphs change.<br />
18. 18. Examples<br />1. Graph: What happens to the graph of as h increases?<br /> <br />2. Graph: What happens to the graph of as h decreases?<br /> <br />3. Graph: What happens to the graph of as k increases?<br />4. Graph: What happens to the graph of as k decreases?<br /> <br />5. Graph: What happens to the graph of as a increases <br /> (approaching infinity)?<br /> <br />6. Graph: What happens to the graph of as a decreases, <br /> approaching zero?<br />
19. 19. Makes the graph wider,<br />more narrow, or flips<br />Makes the graph move<br />left or right, opposite<br />the sign<br />Makes the graph move<br />Up or down, same as sign<br />
20. 20. Absolute Value Inequalities<br />Click on this link to do inequalities<br />http://www.mathwarehouse.com/algebra/linear_equation/absolute-value-functions-inequality.html<br />
