|Explore shifting and stretching of functions
online with the Function Grapher.
First graph y = x2
See how the coefficient stretches the function.
Now try y = x2 again as a base.
This exercise explores the horizontal shift .
For the vertical shift, try y = x2, then y = x2 +5, or y = x2 -10, or y = x2+50. Drag the graph to see where the function was plotted.
