Overall Expectations:

• determine the basic properties of quadratic relations;

• relate transformations of the graph of y = x2 to the algebraic representation   y = a(x – h)2 + k;


Specific Expectations:

- identify the key features of a graph of a parabola (i.e., the equation of the axis of symmetry, the coordinates of the vertex, the y-intercept, the zeros, and the maximum or minimum value)

- sketch, by hand, the graph of y = a(x – h )2 + k by applying  Transformations to the graph of y = x2

- determine the equation, in the form y = a(x – h)2 + k, of a given graph of a parabola.
