By the end of this tutorial students will be able to label the vertex, line of symmetry and roots/zeros on a graph of a quadratic equation (parabola).

Students will also be able to define parabola, quadratic equation, vertex, line of symmetry, and roots/zero.

Lastly, students will be able to identify the shape of a quadratic equation (parabola) as a U-shaped graphs.

Tutorial

1) Title your notes

2) Draw your Cornell Line

3) Write every question on the left

4) Answer every question on the right

5) Write all examples

**LINE OF SYMMETRY: **The vertical line through the vertex, splits parabola into two mirror-image pieces

**QUADRATIC EQUATION: **A polynomial with a highest term of x^{2}

**PARABOLA: **A graph of a quadratic equation

**ROOTS/ZEROS:** The point or points where a parabola intersects the x-axis.

**VERTEX: **The point on the graph where the parabola changes direction from positive to negative or negative to positive
