This video is the first in a new series of videos looking at transformation of functions. This video starts relatively simply by looking at Translation of Functions. I look at what it means to translate a function (move up, down, left or right) and how you might use algebraic methods and substitution methods to find the equation of images. I look at how to sketch graphs knowing translations. There are a number of worked examples and the theory is explained in an easy to understand way.
