We can define a certain parabola by saying it goes through the points (0,0), (1/2,1), (1,0). I know the answer to this. However I don't understand why this method fails:

I put a full 0 vector in that top column, the last one should be a 1.

Ahhh so it just represents the system of equations from plugging in the points to: \(ax^2+bx+c = f(x) \) Yeah you're right the best way I found to do this is we are given two roots so we write: f(x) = k(x-0)(x-1) and plug in the point f(1/2)=1 to solve for k.
