Assignment 2

Try several graphs of



on the same axes. (i.e., use different values of a)



I have graphed five equations on the following graph.  These include



a = 1, 2, 3, 4, 10

The larger the value of a, the thinner the parabola.


When a is negative, the vertex remains the same and the resulting graph is a reflection over the x-axis.  The five equations graphed below are:


a = -1, -2, -3, -4, -10
