Quadratic Functions – Graphing, Mapping Rules, and Parameters

Read each question carefully and show your work. Attach all work that you
complete on your own paper.

1. Given the following quadratic functions, write the corresponding mapping rule.

a) y +1 = ( x −1) 2 b) − ( y + 2) = ( x − 2) 2 c) ( y −1) = x 2

d) − ( y − 6) = x 2 e) − ( y −16 ) = ( x +1) 2 f) − y = ( x + 4) 2

g) ( y + 3) = ( x − 4) 2 h) 2( y − 3) = 3( x − 4) 2 i) ( y + 3.2) = ( x −1.3) 2

2. For each of the functions in question #1, state all parameters.

3. Given the parameters, write the corresponding quadratic equation in transformational form.

a) horizontal translation: 3 right; vertical translation: 2 down; no reflection; vertical


stretch factor of 2

b) axis of symmetry: x = -4; maximum function value: y = 3; vertical stretch factor of 1

c) vertex: (5, 2); reflection present; vertical stretch factor of
4

d) co-efficient of x2 in general form is -2; no horizontal translation; maximum value of


y = -1

e) vertex moves 2 units left, 6 units up from origin when the parabola is transformed from
y = x2; parabola has a minimum; vertical stretch factor of 1

4. Make a graph of each parabola from question #3. Accompany your graph by a table of values
that includes a minimum of five points, including the vertex.
