quadratic function- a nonlinear function with an “x squared” term
parabola- the graph of a quadratic function. It is a U-shaped graph. axis of symmetry- a central line that makes both sides of the parabola symmetric. vertex- highest or lowest point on the graph minimum- lowest point on the graph maximum- highest point on the graph Vocabulary
