12. 4 Quadratic Functions Goal: Graph Quadratic functions -A Quadratic function is a polynomial with a degree of 2

Steps to Graph a Quadratic 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Find the axis of symmetry x = -b/2 a given f(x) =ax²+bx +c Draw your axis of symmetry as a dotted vertical line on your graph Plug in the x value of your axis of symmetry to your quadratic equation to get your corresponding y-value to make a (x, y) The (x, y) is your vertex (max or min point) Your graph of a quadratic will always be a parabola (U) If there is a negative number in front of your x² then the parabola is upside down…if it is positive then it is up To see how wide the parabola is you can either solve for the x-intercepts by factoring and setting the factors equal to zero Or make a xy table: pick 2 x- values to the left of the vertex and 2 x-values to the right of the vertex plug them into your function to get your corresponding y-values and graph your (x, y)

Steps to finding the x-intercepts (roots) of a function 1. 2. 3. 4. Set function =0 Factor Set each factor =0 Solve for your variable

Find the x-intercepts of f(x) = x 2 – 5 x + 6 Set the function = zero and solve.
