Stretching the Quads
Explore parabolas in this algebra lesson with the graphing calculator. The class investigates what effects the changing of the parameters of the vertex form of a quadrati have to its graph. They find the zeros of a quadratic graphically and investigate the relationship of the zeros to the factored form of the quadratic.

What is the Vertex of a Quadratic Function?
The vertex of an upward facing parabola is the lowest point on the parabola and is called the minimum. The vertex on a downward facing parabola is the highest point on the parabola and is called the maximum. These are the two possibilities for the vertex of a quadratic function.
