FNGR 2 | Lesson 4 | Explore (Graphing Quadratics, Again)

Graphing Quadratics, Again

Either by hand, with a graphing calculator, Desmos or Geogebra graph the following functions:

a) \(f(x) = x^2\)

b) \(f(x) = (x+2)^2\)

c) \(f(x) = (x-3)^2\)

d) \(f(x) = (x-5)^2\)

Describe in your own words what you notice about the graphs of the functions.

What happens when you evaluate \(f(x) = (x-3)^2\) at \(x=3\), what is the significance of that point?
