Quadratic Functions and their Graphs
A quadratic function is a function that can be written in the standard form, where a≠0. f(x) = ax bx + c Quadratic term Linear term Constant term

Example 1 Classifying Functions
Determine whether each function is linear or quadratic. Identify the quadratic, linear, and constant terms. y = (2x +3)(x – 4) f(x) = 3(x2-2x) – 3(x2 – 2)

The graph of a quadratic function is a parabola.
The axis of symmetry is the line that divides a parabola into two parts that are mirror images.

The vertex of a parabola is the point at which the parabola intersects the axis of symmetry.
The y-value of the vertex represents the maximum or minimum value of the function.

Graphing Parabolas The standard form of a quadratic function is y=ax2 + bx + c. When b=0, the function simplifies to y=ax2 + c. The graph of y=ax2 + c is a parabola with an axis of symmetry x =0, the y-axis. The vertex of the graph is the y-intercept (0,c).

Properties Graph of a Quadratic Function in Standard Form
The graph of y=ax2 + bx + c is a parabola when a≠0. When a>0, the parabola opens up. When a<0, the parabola opens down. positive quadratic y = x2 negative quadratic y = –x2

Quadratic Graphs 2 y = x The graph of a quadratic function is a U-shaped curve called a parabola. .

Example 1 Graphing a Function of the Form y=ax2 + c
Graph y= -½x2 + 2 Graph y= 2x2 - 4

Symmetry 2 y = x + 3 You can fold a parabola so that the two sides match evenly. This property is called symmetry. The fold or line that divides the parabola into two matching halves is called the axis of symmetry.

5.3 Translating Parabolas
What you’ll learn … To use the vertex form of a quadratic function 2.02 Use quadratic functions and inequalities to model and solve problems; justify results. Solve using tables, graphs, and algebraic properties. Interpret the constants and coefficients in the context of the problem.

Investigation: Vertex Form
Standard Form y = ax2 +bx + c Vertex Form y = a(x – h)2 + k h y = x2 -4x + 4 y = (x – 2)2 y = x2 +6x + 8 y = (x +3)2 - 1 y = -3x2 -12x - 8 y = -3(x +2)2 +4 y = 2x2 +12x +19 y = 2(x +3)2 +1 b 2a

In other words … To translate the graph of a quadratic function, you can use the vertex form of a quadratic function.

Properties The graph of y = a(x – h)2 + k is the graph of y = ax2 translated h units horizontally and k units vertically. When h is positive the graph shifts right; when h is negative the graph shifts left. When k is positive the graph shifts up; when the k is negative the graph shifts down. The vertex is (h,k) and the axis of symmetry is the line x=h.

Example 1a Using Vertex Form to Graph a Parabola
2 Graph y = - (x-2)2 +3 Graph the vertex. Draw the axis of symmetry. Find another point. When x=0. Sketch the curve.

Example 1b Using Vertex Form to Graph a Parabola

Example 2a Writing the Equation of a Parabola

Example 2b Writing the Equation of a Parabola
Write the equation of the parabola. Use the vertex form. Substitute h=__ and k= ___. Substitute x=___ and y = ___. Solve for a.

Example 2c Writing the Equation of a Parabola
Write the equation of a parabola that has vertex (-2, 1) and goes thru the point (1,28). Write the equation of a parabola that has vertex (-1, -4) and has a y intercept of 3.

Convert to Vertex Form y = 2x2 +10x +7 y = -3x2 +12x +5

Convert to Standard Form
y = (x+3)2 - 1 y = -3(x -2 )2 +4

Example 3 Real World Connection
The photo shows the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York, which has the longest span of any suspension bridge in the US. A suspension cable of the bridge forma a curve that resembles a parabola. The curve can be modeled with the function y = (x-2130)2 where x and y are measured in feet. The origin of the function’s graph is at the base of one of the two towers that support the cable. How far apart are the towers? How high are they?

Start by drawing a diagram.
The function, y = (x-2130)2 , is in vertex form. Since h =2130 and k =0, the vertex is (2130,0). The vertex is halfway between the towers, so the distance between the towers is 2(2130) ft = 4260 ft. To find the tower’s height, find y for x=0.

5.4 Factoring Quadratic Expressions
What you’ll learn … To find common and binomial factors of quadratic expressions To factor special quadratic expressions 1.03 Operate with algebraic expressions (polynomial, rational, complex fractions) to solve problems.

Investigation: Factoring
Since = 18, 6 and 3 up a factor pair for 18. Find the other factor pairs for 18, including negative integers. Find the sum of the integers in each factor pair for 18. Does 12 have a factor pair with a sum of -8? A sum of -9? Using all the factor pairs of 12, how many sums are possible? How many sums are possible for the factor pairs of -12? *

Factoring is rewriting an expression as the product of its factors.
The greatest common factor (GCF) of an expression is the common factor with the greatest coefficient and the greatest exponent.

5.5 Quadratic Equations What you’ll learn …
To solve quadratic equations by factoring and by finding square roots To solve quadratic equations by graphing 2.02 Use quadratic functions and inequalities to model and solve problems; justify results. Solve using tables, graphs, and algebraic properties. Interpret the constants and coefficients in the context of the problem.

The standard form of a quadratic equation is ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a ≠ 0. You can solve some quadratic equations in standard form by factoring the quadratic expression and then using the Zero-Product Property. Zero-Product Property If ab = 0, then a =0 or b=0. Example If (x +3) (x -7) = 0 then (x +3) = 0 or (x -7) = 0.

Zero Product Property ( x + 3)(x + 2) = 0 (x + 5)(2x – 3 ) = 0
