Alissa is currently a teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area and Brightstorm users love her clear, concise explanations of tough concepts
In the function y = a  x  h  + k, the "a" value represents making the parent V shape wider or skinnier or perhaps a reflection across the xaxis, the value of "h" represents a horizontal shift, and the value of "k" is a vertical shift. It is often useful to describe these transformations in words for each equation before sketching a graph.
