### Parabola Equations - Graphing Parabolas - YourTeacher.com

For a complete lesson on parabola equations and graphing parabolas, go to http://www.yourteacher.com - 1000+ online math lessons featuring a personal math teacher inside every lesson! In this lesson, students learn to graph quadratic equations that are written in y -- k = a(x -- h)2 form by using the coordinates (h, k) to graph the vertex, and using the x and y-intercepts to graph the parabola. Students are reminded that to find the y-intercept, they must substitute a 0 in for x, and to find the x-intercept(s), they must substitute a zero in for y. Students are also asked to find the axis of symmetry using the formula x = h.
