## Study Notes

### Parabolas and Their Properties

• The domain of the parabola ( y = x^2 - 5 ) includes all real numbers.
• The range for ( y = x^2 - 5 ) is ( y > -5 ).
• The range for ( y = -x^2 - 5 ) is ( y < -5 ).

### Vertex and Shifts

• A parabola with a vertex at (-2, 3) experiences a horizontal shift left by 2 units and a vertical shift up by 3 units from the parent function ( y = x^2 ).
• For the vertex form equation ( y = 7(x - 2)^2 + 3 ), the shifts are a horizontal shift right by 2 units and a vertical shift up by 3 units.

### Finding Axis of Symmetry

• In standard form ( y = ax^2 + bx + c ), the axis of symmetry can be calculated with ( x = -\frac{b}{2a} ).
• From vertex form ( y = a(x-h)^2 + k ), the axis of symmetry is ( x = h ).
• In intercept form ( y = a(x-p)(x-q) ), the axis of symmetry is found using ( x = \frac{(p + q)}{2} ) (average of the intercepts).

### Function Types: Even, Odd, Neither

• An example of an even function is ( y = 7x^4 + 3x^2 ).
• An example of an odd function is ( y = 4x^7 + 2x^3 ).
• A function that is neither even nor odd is represented by ( y = 4x^4 + 3x^3 ).

### Vertex and Intercepts

• The y-value of the vertex for any parabola can be found by substituting the x-value of the axis of symmetry into the original equation.
• The y-intercept of any parabola can be determined by inputting ( x = 0 ) into the equation.

### Graphing Parabolas Using a Table

• To graph a parabola using a table, identify the axis of symmetry as the center value, choosing two numbers less than and two greater than this value for x.

### Effects of "a" Values on Parabolas

• Values of ( a ) greater than 1 or less than -1 cause vertical stretches in the parabola, such as ( a = 3 ) or ( a = -1.7 ).
• Values of ( a ) between -1 and 1 cause vertical shrinks, like ( a = \frac{1}{3} ) or ( a = -0.25 ).

### Opening Direction

• A parabola that opens upward will have its vertex as a minimum point.
• Conversely, a downward-opening parabola has its vertex as a maximum point.
• A negative ( a )-value results in a downward-opening parabola.
• A positive ( a )-value leads to an upward-opening parabola.

### Function Symmetry

• A graph indicates an even function if it proves symmetrical across the y-axis.
• An odd function graph exhibits rotational symmetry about the origin, meaning it maintains its appearance when rotated half a circle around the origin.
• A graph that lacks symmetry across the y-axis and does not show rotational symmetry about the origin is categorized as neither even nor odd.
