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.

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
