Effect of Coefficient of x^0 on Parabola Vertex

Effect of Coefficient of x^0 on Parabola Vertex

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day, and a Write-pair-share activity concerning the effect of the coefficient of x^0 (i.e., the constant, c) on the vertex of a parabola where a and b are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.
