## Lesson Summary

In this lesson, we learned to graph quadratic functions that have a combination of transformations. We found that the vertex form of the equation of a quadratic function makes it easy to find the vertex and identify the transformations. We wrote equations in vertex form from graphs and tables, using our understanding of transformations and the features of parabolas.

The standard form for a quadratic equation is
