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!
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.
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by factoring it. In this tutorial, you'll see how to factor a quadratic equation using the guess and check method of factoring. Then, use the zero product property to find the solution!
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by completing the square. In this method, you want to turn one side of the equation into a perfect square trinomial. This tutorial takes you through the steps of solving a quadratic equation by completing the square. Check it out!
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!
One of the many ways you can solve a quadratic equation is by using the square root method. Follow along with this tutorial and see how to use the square root method to solve a quadratic equation. Take a look!
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!
What does a vertical translation of the quadratic parent function y = x2 look like? How are the equations of the translated function and the parent function related? Watch this tutorial to find 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!
In a quadratic equation, the discriminant helps tell you the number of real solutions to a quadratic equation. The expression used to find the discriminant is the expression located under the radical in the quadratic formula! In this tutorial, get introduced to the discriminant of a quadratic equation!
If you're solving quadratic equations, knowing the quadratic formula is a MUST! This formula is normally used when no other methods for solving quadratics can be reasonably used. In this tutorial, learn about the quadratic formula and see it used to solve a quadratic equation. Take a look!
The zero-product property let's you split the product of factors into separate equations. Then, you can solve each equation to get the solutions to your original equation! Learn all about this very useful property by watching this tutorial.
You can write the vertex form for a quadratic equation if you have the vertex and one other point! This tutorial shows you how to take that information and write an equation for the quadratic in vertex form.
If you want to write the equation of a quadratic in intercept form just from its graph, you can use the x-intercepts and one additional point on the graph. Those three points will tell you all you need. Follow along with this tutorial to see how to use the graph of a quadratic to write its equation in intercepts form.
