# HP Prime for All

In this short article, we discuss how to use the HP Prime Advanced Graphing app to teach students about transformations in the plane, including translations and reflections.

But instead of a geometric approach, the app allows us to take an algebraic approach. We start with a generic shape, which we then transform in various ways to build a picture of a rose.

We start by defining our generic shape, a filled ellipse, given by

x2+y2−x∗y−1<0

- Press
I and tap the Advanced Graphing icon . - Enter the expression above into
`V1`

, usingX andY to help you. - Tap on the color picker for
`V1`

and choose purple

Press

A reflection over the vertical line x=−1 is a mapping such that x→−2−x and y→y.
So we define `V2`

to be `V1(-2-X,Y)`

, as shown in the figure. We use the same color (purple) for our reflection.

Press

We need a stem for our rose. Creating a stem takes some experimentation. Students will learn to stretch the base shape first, then translate it into its final position.

We defined `V3`

to be `V1(10*(X+1),0.3*(Y+4))`

, as shown to the right.
Do not forget to change the color to dark green!

Again, press

Next, we add some leaves.
For the first leaf (in `V4`

), we experiment as we did for the stem, first dilating and then translating to get what we want.
Then the second leaf is the reflection of the first leaf, using the same method we used for the petals.
We chose light green as the color for both leaves.

And now you have a simple rose!

For extra credit, we added two fancy petals and some thorns. The expressions are shown on the next page in case you want to work them out for yourself first!

Be sure to save your new app. Press `ARose4You`

), and tap

If you are using the HP Virtual Prime for the PC (it is on the product CD that came with your HP Prime), you can just copy and paste the expressions below into the virtual calculator. Then you can send the app from the virtual calculator to your physical HP Prime. The steps are listed below.

Advanced Graphing app expressions for the rose:

V1: `X^2+Y^2-X*Y-1<0`

V2: `V1(-2-X,Y)`

V3: `V1(10*(X+1),.3*(Y+4))`

V4: `V1(2*(X+.5),2*(Y+4))`

V5: `V4(-2-X,Y)`

V6: `Y+1>(X+1)^2 AND Y<1+COS(2*X+3)`

V7: `V6(-2-X,Y)`

V8: `V1(20*(X+.8),10*(Y+3))`

V9: `V8(-2-X,Y)`

- Select and copy the expressionnamed V1. Note: select and copy everything after “V1:”
- On the HP Prime Virtual Calculator, go to the Rose app Symbolic view and select the field
`V1`

- In the menu bar, click on
*Edit*and select*Paste*. The expression will be pasted into the`V1`

field. - Tap
OK to accept the expression. It will now graph properly. - Repeat Steps 2-4 for the other expressions (V2-V9)

- Connect your physical HP Primeto your PC using the USB cable
- Turn on your HP Prime and launch the HP Prime Virtual Calculator for the PC
- On the virtual Prime menu bar , click
*Calculator*, then click*Connect To*and select your physical Prime - Go to the App Library, select the Rose app, and tap
Send - The Rose app is now on your physical Prime and ready for viewing!
