The axis of symmetry is the vertical line that goes through the vertex of a quadratic equation. There's even a formula to help find it! In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the axis of symmetry for a given quadratic equation.
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!
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!
The vertex of a quadratic equation is either a maximum or a minimum of the function. But how do you tell if it will be a maximum or a minimum? Watch this tutorial and find the answer to that question!
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 parabola tends to look like a smile or a frown, depending on the function. Check out this tutorial and learn about parabolas!
When you're dealing with quadratic functions, maximum and minimum are very likely to come up. This tutorial takes a look at the maximum of a quadratic function. Check it out!
When you're dealing with quadratic functions, maximum and minimum are very likely to come up. This tutorial takes a look at the minimum of a quadratic function. Check it out!
You can't go through algebra without seeing quadratic functions. The graphs of quadratic functions are parabolas; they tend to look like a smile or a frown. In this tutorial, get introduced to quadratic functions, look at their graphs, and see some examples of quadratic functions!
Got a quadratic polynomial? Want to put it in standard form? Watch this tutorial to learn the steps it takes to make sure a quadratic polynomial is in standard form!
Three points determine a parabola, so given three points you can write the parabola's equation. This tutorial will show you how!
