After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:

- Sketch the graph of the parent tangent function
- Sketch the graph of a function that involves the tangent function.

In the Activity Object, a different procedure is given to graph a tangent function. Now, we will graph the tangent function using the transformations for a function.

First, recall that the function has domain all real numbers x except , where n is an odd integer and range all real numbers. At the values , there are vertical asymptotes. The period of is
