    This lesson transitions you from vertex form of a parabolic equation into standard form for a quadratic equation. Standard form is more difficult to use to find the vertex and axis of symmetry for the parabola. There are equations for finding these values that are shown in this lesson and explained in future lessons. An equation in standard form is also graphed.
