# Interactive video lesson plan for: Algebra 2 - Teach how to graph an absolute value equation using transformations, y = 2|x + 1| - 4

#### Activity overview:

http://www.freemathvideos.com In this video playlist you will learn how to solve and graph absolute value equations and inequalities. When working with absolute value equations and functions it is important to understand that the absolute value symbol represents the absolute distance from zero. Therefore when solving absolute value equations and inequalities we have to provide two cases. It is important to first isolate the absolute value symbol then create your two cases for the positive and negative distance. For inequalities when you create the negative distance you have to remember to flip the sign. For graphing we will take a look at the shape of the graph and determine the axis of symmetry and vertex to apply transformations to graph the equation or function.

@kklaster

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

@ordmiss

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral
