Graphing Absolute Value Equations

In this lesson we will explore the graphs of absolute value equations.  Understanding how to graph various functions in algebra is a key skill you need to learn. Graphs help us interpret data and make conclusions when problem solving.  The absolute value graph is easy to identify as it’s shape is always “V” shaped.  I will be teaching you how to find the vertex (the point of the tip of the “V”) and how to sketch a basic graph.  Also I really suggest using graph paper when practicing as it will help you keep your work neat and organized.
