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.

Tutorial

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 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
