  • 1. PARENT FUNCTIONS Module 2 Lesson 4
  • 2. What is a parent function? We use the term ‘parent function’ to describe a family of graphs. The parent function gives a graph all of the unique properties and then we use transformations to move the graph around the plane. You have already seen this with lines. The parent function for a lines is y = x. To move the line around the Cartesian plane, we change the coefficient of x (the slope) and add or subtract a constant (the y intercept), to create the family of lines, or y = mx + b. To graphthesefunctions, wewill usea tableof values to createpoints onthegraph.

  • 4. Symmetry Many parent functions have a form of symmetry. There are two types of symmetry:  Symmetry over the y-axis  Symmetry over the origin. If a function is symmetric over the y-axis, then it is an even function. If a function is symmetric over the origin, then it is an odd function.
