Let's begin by exploring various graphs
and equations. By studying the attributes of the examples and
non-examples, you should be able to
identify graphs of quadratic function
identify equations of a quadratic function
define a quadratic function
describe the characteristics of a quadratic function
Based on the graphs above, DESCRIBE several
characteristics of a quadratic function.
Describe the difference between the examples
and the non-examples of these equations:
Now try to define a quadratic function using
both parts of this exploration:
The General Form of a Quadratic Equation is
The graph of a quadratic equation is a parabola.
