Every quadratic function has a U-shaped graph called a parabola.
Quadratic Functions A quadratic function is a function that can be written in the standard form: Every quadratic function has a U-shaped graph called a parabola. y y x x The parabola opens up if the value of a is positive. The parabola opens down if the value of a is negative.

Will the parabola open up or down?
Rewrite the equation in standard form first to determine the leading coefficient. down

• • The vertex is the lowest point on parabolas that open up.
The vertex is the highest point on parabolas that open down. The lowest point is also known as the minimum. The highest point is also known as the maximum. y y x x

axis (line) of symmetry axis (line) of symmetry
The vertical line passing through the vertex that divides the parabola into two symmetric parts is called the axis (line) of symmetry. y y x x axis (line) of symmetry axis (line) of symmetry

axis (line) of symmetry axis (line) of symmetry
Each point on the parabola that is on one side of the axis of symmetry has a corresponding point on the parabola on the other side of the axis. The vertex is the only point on the parabola that is on the axis of symmetry. y y x x axis (line) of symmetry axis (line) of symmetry

1. Find the x-coordinate of the vertex, which is 2. Make a table of values. Using x-values, calculate at least two values to the left and two values to the right of the vertex. If all of your values are on one side of the vertex, you will graph half of a parabola. 3. Plot the points and connect them with a smooth curve to form a parabola. Put arrows on the ends of the parabola. The axis of symmetry for y = ax2 + bx + c is the vertical line The y-intercept of y = ax2 + bx + c is the value given for “c”.
