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!
Dealing with graphs of quadratic equations? You should know about the parent function graph first! All graphs of quadratic equations start off looking like this before their transformed. Check it out!
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!
Word problems allow you to see math in action! Take a look at this word problem involving an object's weight on Earth compared to its weight on the Moon. See how the formula for direct variation plays an important role in finding the solution. Then use that formula to see how much you would weigh on the Moon!
If two things are directly proportional, you can bet that you'll need to use the formula for direct variation to solve! In this tutorial, you'll see how to use the formula for direct variation to find the constant of variation and then solve for your answer.
