Lesson 4Transformers: Shifty y’sDevelop Understanding

Make a point on the vertex, and draw a dotted line for the line of symmetry. Label the coordinates of the vertex, and state whether it’s a maximum or a minimum. Write the equation for the line of symmetry.

7.

What connection exists between the coordinates of the vertex and the equation of the axis of symmetry?

8.

The line of symmetry of a parabola is not always located on an easy-to-read point or line. Consider the parabola shown, and explain how you could find the line of symmetry.

9.

How many -intercepts are possible for a parabola?

10.

Sketch a parabola that has no -intercepts, and explain what would cause a parabola to not have any -intercepts.
