When a is positive, the vertex is a _________ minimum
When a is negative, the vertex is a _________ maximum
What is the standard equation for a parabola? y = ax^2 + bx + c
c is the _________ y -intercept
The line of symmetry always goes through the ____ vertex
What is the formula for the line of symmetry? x = -b/(2a)
To find the vertex, you... find the line of symmetry, then plug that value into the equation.
Quadratic equation in transformation form: y = a(x-h)^2 + k
