Tired of lines? Not sure if a parabola is a disease of the gut or a new mode of transportation? Ever wondered what would happen to the graph of a function if you stuck an x² someplace? Well, look no further. In this tutorial, we will study the graphs of quadratic functions (parabolas), including their foci and whatever the plural of directrix is.
