*The graph of a quadratic function is a shape called a parabola. The most basic parabola is obtained from the function. The graph of is shown below. The vertex of the graph of is at (0, 0). If the vertex is at some other point on the graph, then a translation or a transformation of the parabola has occurred.*Parabola definition, a plane curve formed by the intersection of a right circular cone with a plane parallel to a generator of the cone; the set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed line and a fixed point in the same plane or in a parallel plane. A parabola is the U shape that we get when we graph a quadratic equation. We actually see parabolas all over the place in real life. In this lesson, learn where, and the correct vocab to use when ...
