Stretching the Quads

Scholars investigate transforming parabolas.  In this transforming parabolas lesson, they take the parent graph y=x^2 and transform it by shifting left, right, up, and down and shrinking and stretching. The class finds maximums, minimums, roots, vertices, and concavity of various parabolas.  Finally, they are given a quadratic equation in vertex form and are asked to find the standard form of the equation.
