    In this lesson, you will learn how to determine the translational (transformational) attributes on the graphs of functions by examining the modifications on those functions. Here are the sections within this lesson:

    Graphs of functions can be shifted horizontally and vertically, stretched and shrunk vertically, and reflected over the x-axis according to this table.
