# FNGR 2 | Lesson 4 | Making Connections (Quadratics and Horizontal Shifts)

Part A:

What do you notice about the four graphs you graphed from the equations in the second set of equations you explored?

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

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

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

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

What conclusions can you draw? How do you know?

Part B:

Compare and contrast the two sets of graphs. What is similar? What is different?

Describe how you would translate a quadratic function vertically.
