This applet will help you to see the effects of transformations of quadratic equations.
1. Check the box to view the quadratic parent function. What do you notice about the curve? Where does the function cross the x and y axes? Note the width as well. 2. Check the box to view the transformed function. Use the sliders to change the values for a, b, and c. How does changing each of these values change the graph? 3. Check the box to view task 3. Manipulate the values for a, b, and c so that the graph matches up with the points A, B, C, D, and E.
