By the end of this tutorial students will be able to graph the roots and line of symmetry from a factored form quadratic equation onto a coordinate plane (assuming all roots are real). Students will find the line of symmetry using the mid-distance/average formula (a + b)/2.
1) Write title on top of page
2) Draw Cornell Line
3) Write every question & answers
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
