Lesson 12: Graphing parabolas

The lesson begins with an exploration of the family of graphs of \(y = ax^2\), with an emphasis on tracking the changes in the \(y\)-values for differing values of the parameter \(a\). The vertical shifts of \(y = ax^2 + c\) follow, leading into the graphs of \(y = ax^2 + bx\) and the derivation of the formula for the vertex.
