Lesson 12: Graphing parabolas
Course Topic(s): Developmental Math | Quadratics
The lesson begins with an exploration of the family of graphs of (y = ax^2), with an emphasis on tracking the changes in the (y)-values for differing values of the parameter (a). The vertical shifts of (y = ax^2 + c) follow, leading into the graphs of (y = ax^2 + bx) and the derivation of the formula for the vertex.
