Solving and Graphing Quadratic Equations

Lesson Objective

In this lesson, you will study two different forms of quadratic equations: standard form and vertex form. Also, you will study how to find the roots of quadratics both algebraically and graphically. You will be introduced to the concept of symmetry in graphs of parabolas.

Previously Covered:

  • Rational polynomials can be easily simplified when they are factored (if possible) and common terms are eliminated. Always look for a GCF before factoring.
  • The operations addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division can be applied to combine multiple rational polynomials into one final solution.
  • Rational functions are undefined at their asymptotes.
