EagleCat: parabola

Explore the graphs of quadratic equations in two forms: (a) the turning point form, y = a(x – h)² + k, and (b) the intercept form, y = (x – a)(x – b). Observe changes to the turning point and the shape of parabolic graphs through various transformations. Alternately, change the equation and observe changes in the x-intercepts ...
