Use the graph provided to aide in answering the following questions:

1. What is the name of the type of function graphed? _______________________________
a. Write the equation of the graph in vertex form. __________________________
2. What occurs when “a” is greater than 1?
a. When 0 < a < 1?
b. When “a” is negative?
3. What happens to the graph when “p” is greater than 0?
a. When “p” is less than 0?
4. What kind of change appears to the graph when “q” is less than 0?
a. When “q” is greater than 0?
5. In vertex form, write the equation of the graph when a = -0.5 p = -3 q = -3
Describe the relationship you see between p and q and the vertex (h, k).
