For this learning packet, we want to become comfortable with the quadratic equation and will complete the following objectives:

-Identify the standard form of the quadratic equation

-Recognize what a quadratic equation looks like when graphed

-Graph a quadratic equation

-Locate the vertex and axis of symmetry, along with the max or min

This packet should give you a solid foundation on graphing quadratic equations and their many properties.

Tutorial

How to begin graphing quadratic equations and how to identify the vertex, axis of symmetry, concavity, and minimum point.

A step by step procedure to graphing quadratic equations.

Now take a look and see if you can graph these examples by yourself and prove you are truly a mastermind at graphing quadratic equations:

1. x^{2}-x-6

2. x^{2}-2x-8

3. x^{2}-3x-4

4. x^{2}-5x+6
