Transformations

What is the equation of the parent graph of quadratic functions? ____________________

To change the appearance of this graph, you use transformations. Transformations strech, compress, shift, or reflect the graph. 

.

Vertex Form

Vertex form of a parabola is:   y=a(x-h)^2+k

Describe what each variable does:

  • a: __________________________________________
  • h__________________________________________
  • k__________________________________________

What happens if a is negative? __________________________________________

.

Graph the following quadratic functions and identify the transformations.

  1. y=-2(x+3)^2+7
  2. y=-\frac{1}{2}(x+6)^2+9
