Summary: The transformations found in secondary mathematics curriculum are typically limited to stretches and translations (e.g., ACARA, 2010). Advanced students may find the transformation, twist, to be of further interest. As most available resources are written for professional-level readers, this article is intended to be an introduction accessible to advanced secondary students. It offers definition and explication of ``twist'' and presents examples that show that the twist transformation can yield aesthetically pleasing graphs. (Contains 4 figures and 7 examples.) (ERIC)
