Using the TI-Calculator Solve for y, then press ‘y=‘ key. Enter the equation. Press ‘Graph’ key (if can’t see graph, try hitting ‘Zoom’ and ‘Standard’) The answer(s): –Where does the graph hit the x-axis? Hit 2 nd -Trace, then 2-Zero The screen asks ‘Left bound?’. Use arrow keys to move the cursor to the left of one of the x- intercepts. Press ‘Enter’. The screen asks ‘Right bound?’. Use arrow keys to move the cursor to the right of that x-intercept. Press ‘Enter’. Then press ‘Enter’ again to ‘Guess’ the zero. Repeat this process to find the other zero.
****You can have 2, 1, or 0 answers!**** Vertex: minimum/maximum point of the graph –Press 2 nd -Trace, then 3-(Minimum) for upward opening, 4-(maximum) for downward opening –Again, follow previous slide’s directions for answering left bound and right bound questions. Axis of Symmetry: Cuts Parabola in half –“x = “ x-value from vertex
Example: Parts to Know Solution: x= -2, x = 1 Vertex: (- 0.5, 2.25) Axis of symmetry: x = - 0.5 **Solutions, Zeros, Roots, and X-intercept all mean the same thing, find the value(s) of x!**
YOU TRY! Example: Parts to Know Roots: Vertex: Axis of symmetry:
Example: Parts to Know Roots: x= -3 Vertex: (- 3, 0) Axis of symmetry: x = - 3
