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

What do you notice about the four graphs you graphed from the equations in the opening explore?

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

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

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

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

What conclusions can you draw? How do you know?
