Using computers to plot mathematical functions is a very common task, and is also a great
way to strengthen your understanding of how functions appear and behave, without the hassle of
using pencil and paper (or the small buttons on your calculator).
Move the mouse over a dotted box for more information.
Now you try. Try fixing the y= statement to be the function you wish to plot. Also, try testing the ideas of shrinking, expanding, and translating functions, as in $x^2$ to $2*(x-5)^2$.

This code will not run. You have to fix the y= statement first to define your parabola (hint: try y=x^2). Next, you
have to fix the pset statement to plot $x$ on the x-axis, and $y$ on the y-axis. Can you do it?
