**Vertex Form | Desmos**

Go to the Desmos activity below to explore how changing the values of \(a\), \(b\), and \(c\) impact the graph a parabola written in Vertex Form \(y=a(x-h)^2+k\).

Graphing Quadratic Functions | Desmos

Consider the following during the exploration:

- Is this a quadratic function if \(a\) is 0? Why or why not?
- What do you notice about the parabola as \(a\) changes?
- What do you notice about the parabola as \(h\) changes?
- What do you notice about the parabola as \(k\) changes?
