in a polynomail function, does the leading coeeficient do anything else than tell you the direction of the graph (i.e. whether it's inverted or not)?

Math  quick question 
MathMate,
Yes, it tells us how steep the graph would be.
f(x) = 2x²+x+3 would be steeper than
f(x) = x²+x+3
In addition, the zeroes would change in position.
