Building a Quadratic Function Form

This Building a Quadratic Function Form lesson plan also includes:

Comparing the movement of graphs geometrically when small changes are made to the parent function motivates this collaborative discussion on the transformations of functions to their various forms. Vertical and horizontal shifts due to additive scaling of the original function, reflections and stretching due to multiplicative scaling, and horizontal shifts due to a linear change of variables are explored.
