Alissa is currently a teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area and Brightstorm users love her clear, concise explanations of tough concepts

If you know the "parent" graph and some key features about the graph of y = root (x), then you can use transformation rules to sketch other square root functions. Here we look at vertical shifts- that is, how a value added or subtracted outside the root tells us to move the key points up or down. We also consider what this does to our domain (inputs) and range (outputs).
