Quadratic Transformer

This Java applet demonstrates visually how changing the coefficients in a quadratic function changes the graph, and shows the relationship between roots and x-intercepts. An included activity handout guides students to develop rules for how changes to the quadratic and constant coefficients of a quadratic function change its graph, and to briefly explore the "polynomial," "root" and "vertex" forms of a quadratic function....
