1 Properties of Quadratic Function Graphs Algebra Unit 11

WARM-UP: DISCUSS WITH YOUR PARTNER 2 1. Find the y-intercept: a. b. 2. Simplify: a. b. 3. Add: Let x=0 y-int (0,-7) y-int (0,6)

y = ax 2 + bx + c The parabola will open down when the a value is negative. The parabola will open up when the a value is positive. The standard form of a quadratic function is a > 0 a < 0 The graph of a quadratic function is called a parabola.

VERTEX THE VERTEX IS THE HIGHEST OR LOWEST POINT OF THE PARABOLA. Vertex

y x Line of Symmetry LINE OF SYMMETRY Parabolas have a symmetric property to them. line of symmetry– the line that goes thru the vertex and divides the parabola in half.

FINDING THE LINE OF SYMMETRY The equation of the line of symmetry is

FINDING THE VERTEX STEP 1: Find the line of symmetry STEP 2: Plug the x – value into the original equation to find the y value. STEP 3: Write the answer as a coordinate.

FINDING THE Y-INTERCEPT Step 1: Let x = 0 Step 2: Simplify, write the answer as a coordinate. This means that the y-intercept of a quadratic function is always the value of c.
