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

Quadratics and Vertical Shifts

Now apply what you read about 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?
