In this lecture you will learn how to Analyze the Graphs of Quadratic Equations. You will first begin with the Vertex Form and then cover the Significance of the Coefficient 'a.' Then, you will cover Writing Quadratic Equations in Vertex Form before the fully worked out example videos.
understand the vertex form of a quadratic function.
The coefficient of
the quadratic term determines the direction that the graph opens and
the shape of the parabola.
The values of h
and k in the vertex form determine how the graph is translated
vertically and horizontally.
square to put a quadratic function in vertex form. Factor the
coefficient of the quadratic term first if it is not 1.
