How Do You Translate a Polynomial Function Vertically?
Want to move a graphed function up or down? This is called a function translation. This video looks at translating a cubic function up three units. It considers the function in standard form, the graph of the function, and a table of values of the function, to see how each is affected by this function translation.

How Do You Use Coordinates to Translate a Figure Horizontally?
There are many ways to transform a figure on a coordinate plane. This problem requires the movement to be four units horizontally to the right. Using the original coordinate pairs, a positive 4 can be added to each x-value to get the new coordinate points.

How Do You Use Coordinates to Translate a Figure Vertically?
Transform the figure six units vertically down. Use the given coordinate points to translate by subtracting 6 from each of the given y-values. Then plot the new coordinates points and connect the dots.

Math Journal: Functions and Coordinate Geometry
Fifth graders examine the many uses of coordinate grids. In this graphing lesson, 5th graders write data driven equations, discuss the x and y-axis, and determine if using 2 or 3 ordered pairs is better. Students complete several discussions and guided practices and then work independently on the worksheets provided within the unit.

Exploring Quadratic Data Using Translation and Dilation
Mathematicians analyze the vertex form of a parabola and find an approximate fit of a model. They explain the quadratic parabola function and its properties by developing quadratic models. They use translation and dilation to change the general parabola.

How Do You Use a Graph to Translate a Figure Horizontally?
Transformations. Learn a little bit of geometry. See how to translate a geometric figure on a coordinate plane horizontally by sliding it over. Simply pick a point on the figure and count the units you want to move it. Then repeat that for all the marked points.
