Background Tutorials

Graph quadratic functions on the coordinate plane and use the graph to identify key attributes, if possible, including x-intercept, y-intercept, zeros, maximum value, minimum values, vertex, and the equation of the axis of symmetry

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.

Further Exploration

Solve quadratic equations having real solutions by factoring, taking square roots, completing the square, and applying the quadratic formula

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!
