    WHAT IS H? (Or: what is H? There is no need for shouting).

    It seems that changing the value of h has all kinds of change effects on the shape of the parabola, if you look at @UnkleRhaukus' drawings ;) or has it?

    The value of h does NOT change the shape of the parabola, it merely translates it left and right.

    That's what @UnkleRhaukus tried to make clear...

    if k is + it moves it up, if k is - it moves it down if h is + it moves it left, if h is - it moves it right if a is negative, you will have a reflection about the x axis

    Actually, precal, is h is + it moves right, but in the equation you write x - h. The sign of h doesn't change. Just sayin'
