Quadratic Symmetry 2
This is a basic activity exploring the translations of a parabola. Use the slider to adjust the value of k. You may also drag the pink point to view the coordinates of its purple reflection. 1. How does the value of k change the equation? 2. What happens to the graph as k gets larger? 3. What happens to the graph as k gets smaller? 4. How the the equation for the axis of symmetry related to the value of k? 5. How the the value of the vertex related to the value of k?
