You thought that all you had to do was learn how to graph lines in algebra? What fun would that be- lines are boring!  So to make algebra interesting we expect students to be able to graph quadratic equations.  Quadratic equations have  U shaped graphs called “parabolas”.  The top or bottom location of this “U” graph is called the vertex- it’s a (x, y) point and you need to learn how to find it. With all of this in mind the notes below explain the steps to actually graph a quadratic equation- enjoy!


 

Now graph the parabola
