Absolute Value Parent Function
Let’s analyze the parent absolute value function:
What characteristics/properties can we discuss for any function?
- Type of Function: Absolute Value
- Parent function: \(y=|x|\)
- Graph and its characteristics (vertex, domain, range, increasing/decreasing regions, symmetry)
Go to Desmos: https://www.desmos.com/calculator
Graph the function \(y=|x|\). What do you notice? How is this similar/different from \(y = x\) and \(y = -x\) ?
