Absolute Value

Terms for algebra 2 absolute value unit

QuestionAnswer
Absolute Value of a Number The distance the number is from zero on a number line
Extraneous Solution A solution found when solving an absolute value equation that isn't a true solution. (Found when testing values)
Standard Form for an Absolute Value Function f(x)= a|mx+b|+c
Parent Function The simplest form of an equation, such as: y=x or y=|x|
Translation Shifts (slides) the graph vertically, horizontally or both. The size and shape of the graph stays the same.
Horizontal translation to the left y= |x+h|
Horizontal translation to the right y=|x-h|
Vertical translation up y=|x|+k
Vertical translation down y=|x|-k
Combined translation up and right y=|x-h|+k
Combined translation up and left y=|x+h|+k
Combined translation down and right y=|x-h|-k
Combined translation down and left y=|x+h|-k
Vertical Stretch of a Graph Multiplies all the y-values by the same factor (a) that is GREATER than 1 (makes the graph "skinnier")
Vertical Shrink of a Graph Multiplies all the y-values by the same factor (a) that is BETWEEN 0 and 1 (makes the graph "fatter")
Reflection of a graph The graph "flips" vertically over the x-axis because the y-values have all been multiplied by a negative value (-a)
Linear Inequality An equation in two variables (x & y) whose graph is a region of the coordinate plane (shown by shading the solution region) that is bounded by the equation of the line.
Absolute Value Inequality An equation in two variables (x & y) whose graph is a region of the coordinate plane (shown by shading the solution region) that is bounded by the equation of the line.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
