# Math - The Quadratic Equation

In this lecture we dissected the terms that make up a quadratic equation, and looked at how each of these components affect the shape and position of the curve.

Did you expect each term to affect the curve in the way that it does?

Just wanted yāall to know itās great stuff and Iāve enjoyed the course. Shame itāll hit an end so soon but easy to binge through.

@XavierMagnus Iām glad to hear that youāre enjoying the course, and great work making it through all of the current content.
The next section on āAngles and Circlesā will start very soon (within days). And weāll be adding around 2-4 new lectures a week that section. We also have additional sections planned after that, so the course isnāt quite finished yet!

This was fun and it surprised me, but understandable.

If a is ā0ā, no parabolic line, but a horizontal line. As explained.
Changing b, the straight line rotated. Due to b acting as the line gradient.
And the increasing b sets the line in a more vertical position.
But, as we learned in previous lessons. There can not be a total vertical line.
The higher b, the less influence is has on the nearly verticalness? of the line.
