This topic introduces the student to graphing quadratic equations. This series of six lessons teaches the student how to graph quadratic equations, how to find solutions of quadratic equations using a graph, and various properties of the graph of a quadratic equation.
This series expands the knowledge of the student on non-linear equations. The student sees examples of non-linear graphs and properties about these graphs.
In this lesson, the student learns how to graph a quadratic equation by making a table of values and plotting the points on the coordinate grid. The student is introduced to parabolas, and is shown how quadratic equations make a parabolic graph.
This lesson introduces the student to determining the value of y given an x value and the graph of a parabola. The student learns to use the graph of a quadratic equation to approximate the value of a quadratic expression at a given value.
This lesson introduces the student to finding the intercepts of the graph of a quadratic equation. The student learns to solve for the y-intercept and x-intercept.
This lesson teaches the student to determine whether the graph of a quadratic equation will result in a parabola that opens up or a parabola that opens down.
This lesson introduces the student to the vertex of a quadratic equation. The student learns the definition of the vertex. Then, the student sees how to find the vertex of a quadratic equation.
In this lesson, the student learns the definition of the axis of symmetry. The student sees that the shape of a parabola is symmetric. They also learn to find the equation for the axis of symmetry.
