Quadratic Equations and Functions Pathway

Quadratic Equations and Functions Pathway

Did you know baseball players love graphing quadratic functions?  Just like all graphs of linear functions are straight lines, the graphs of quadratic functions are parabolas. Locating the Maximum and Minimum of a Parabola can be helpful in modeling real world situations, such as the path of a ball as it’s being thrown in the air. Solutions to quadratic equations are also called roots, and are points where the parabola touches or crosses the x-axis. Upon completion of this pathway, you will be able to use The Quadratic Formula to find solutions to quadratic functions, and recognize Quadratic Equations with No Real Solutions.
