Given the curve of a given function y=f(x), you may be required to sketch transformations of the curve. Transformations can shift, stretch and flip the curve of a function.
A y-transformation affects the y coordinates of a curve. You can identify a y-transformation as changes are made outside the brackets of y=f(x).
x-transformations always behave in the opposite way to what is expected. They can identified when changes are made inside the brackets of y=f(x).
See Curve Sketching for some more practice questions on Transformations.
