When you're trying to graph a quadratic equation, making a table of values can be really helpful. Before you make a table, first find the vertex of the quadratic equation. That way, you can pick values on either side to see what the graph does on either side of the vertex. Watch this tutorial to see how you can graph a quadratic equation!
Each quadratic equation has either a maximum or minimum, but did you that this point has a special name? In a quadratic equation, this point is called the vertex! Take a look at the vertex of a quadratic equation by watching this tutorial.
Ever notice that the left side of the graph of a quadratic equation looks a lot like the right side of the graph? In fact, these sides are just mirror images of each other! If you were to cut a quadratic equation graph vertically in half at the vertex, you would get these symmetrical sides. That vertical line that you cut has a special name. It's called the axis of symmetry. To learn about the axis of symmetry, watch this tutorial!
If you graph a linear function, you get a line. If you graph a quadratic function, you get something called a parabola. A para
The vertex of a quadratic equation is the minimum or maximum point of the equation. Did you know that you can use the formula for the axis of symmetry to help find the vertex of a quadratic equation? Watch this tutorial and see how it's done!
When you're trying to graph a quadratic equation, making a table of values can be really helpful. To figure out what x-values to use in the table, first find the vertex of the quadratic equation. That way, you can pick values on either side to see what the graph does on either side of the vertex. To see how to make a table of values for a quadratic equation, check out this tutorial!
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by graphing it and seeing where it crosses the x-axis. Follow along as this tutorial shows you how to graph a quadratic equation to find the solution. Check it out!
