When observing second degree polynomials the general equation: is considered. The coefficients, a,b, and c all contribute to a different behavior for the graph.
Notice the exponent values for the following equations:
For this exploration, we will focus on the manipulation of the a, coefficient for the equation . To see how the graph with change with different values of, a, in the interval [0.1,1], click on the equation above.
