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!
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.
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!
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!
