Student[Precalculus][StandardFunctionsTutor] - graph the various standard functions

 Calling Sequence StandardFunctionsTutor(f)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in at most one variable (see details below)

Description

 • The StandardFunctionsTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that plots the graph of f and allows modification of the function. It demonstrates the effects of changes in amplitude and/or period, and the effects of horizontal and/or vertical translations.
 • In the tutor, you can enter values for a, b, h, and k and view the graphs of f(x) and a*f(b*(x-h))+k, where f is one of sin, cos, tan, csc, sec, cot, exp, ln, log10, abs, sqrt, arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccot, sinh, cosh, tanh, csch, sech, coth, arcsinh, arccosh, arctanh, arccsch, arcsech, arccoth.
 • If f is not specified, StandardFunctionsTutor uses a default function.
 • If an expression in one variable is specified, the tutor replaces the variable name with x.
