Move the slider to change the value of p.
You can see the effect of this by comparing the blue graph to the graph of x squared which is red.
Use the buttons to show the table - can you see why the graph changes in the way it does?
Turn "Trace On" - you will then see copies of the graph as you move the slider.

Examine the values of in the table as you move the slider.

**Why does changing the value of p change the graph in this way?**Some people think the graph should move in the other direction - try to understand what is happening.**Also note the connection between p and the axis of symmetry of the graph.**
