By the end of this tutorial students will be able to solve for the roots of a quadratic equation in factored form by setting the equation equal to zero and balancing. Students will be able to solve this process for both one and two-root parabolas.
1) Write title at the top of your page
2) Add Cornell Line
3) Write all questions & answer
4) Write all examples
FACTORED FORM: Any quadratic equation in the form y = (x - a)(x - b)
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 x2
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
