Standard Form The graphs of quadratic functions are parabolas
If a > 0, the parabola opens upward If a < 0, the parabola opens downward Vertex => (h,k) Axis of symmetry => x = h h controls vertex movement left and right k controls vertex movement up and down vertex axis of symmetry Examples: Find the coordinates of the vertex for the given quadratic functions and give the axis of symmetry Vertex: Axis of symmetry: Opens ____________ Vertex: Axis of symmetry: Opens ____________ Vertex: Axis of symmetry: Opens ____________

Examples Graph the quadratic function. Give the axis of symmetry, domain, and range of each function. 6 6 5 5 4 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 6 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 6 -1 -1 -2 -2 -3 -3 -4 -4 -5 -5 -6 -6 See pg 288 in the book for a 5-step guide to graphing quadratic functions in standard form

Another Form Another common form is used for parabolas as well
vertex Functions of this form can be converted to standard form by completing the square If a > 0, the parabola opens upward If a < 0, the parabola opens downward Vertex => Find x-intercepts by solving f(x) = 0 Find y-intercept by finding f(0) axis of symmetry Examples: Find the coordinates of the vertex for the given quadratic functions and give the x and y intercepts Vertex: x-intercepts: y-intercept: Vertex: x-intercepts: y-intercept: Vertex: x-intercepts: y-intercept:
