Videos and solutions to help Algebra I students learn how to graph simple quadratic equations of the form y = a(x-h)2 + k (completed-square or vertex form), recognizing that (h, k) represents the vertex of the graph and use a graph to construct a quadratic equation in vertex form.

Students understand the relationship between the leading coefficient of a quadratic function and its concavity and slope and recognize that an infinite number of quadratic functions share the same vertex.
