The graph of a Quadratic function is called a parabola.

A Quadratic function

Parabola are Symmetrical

Axis of Symmetry, splits it down the middle

The Vertex of the Parabola

The Vertex is a point at the highest or lowest point of the graph of a parabola. The Vertex is on the axis of symmetry, so its x coordinate is found by

How can you tell if the Vertex is the highest or lowest point.

It all depends on “a”.

If a > 0, the parabola If a<0, the parabola is opens upward. opens downward

The Maximum or Minimum value is the y value of the vertex

If the vertex is ( -3, 1), of f(x)= x2 + 6x + 10, then the minimum value is 1. Since the

parabola is opening upward it is the minimum.

How to graph the parabolaf(x) = 2- 4x + x2

Start a table using number higher and lower then 2, from the vertex. Plot points

How to graph the parabolaf(x) = 2- 4x + x2

Connects the points.

Graph the function. Show the y intercept, axis of symmetry and vertex

f(x) = -x2 + 2x + 3

Graph the function. Show the y intercept, axis of symmetry and vertex

f(x) = -x2 + 2x + 3

Does the graph open up or down?

What are a , b and c?

Graph the function. Show the y intercept, axis of symmetry and vertex

f(x) = -x2 + 2x + 3

Does the graph open up or down? Down

What are a , b and c?

a = -1

b = 2

c = 3, so the y intercept is (0,3)

Graph the function. Show the y intercept, axis of symmetry and vertex

f(x) = -x2 + 2x + 3

axis of symmetry is x = 1

What are a , b and c?

a = -1 The vertex is

b = 2

c = 3
