This is comprehensive lesson that considers many aspects of quadratic functions. It includes using factoring, completing the square and the use of the quadratic formula for finding the zeros of the function (including imaginary roots). It also reverses the whole process by looking at either different graphs of quadratic functions or zeros that are given and challenges the learner to derive the function.

What is the Vertex of a Quadratic Function?
The vertex of an upward facing parabola is the lowest point on the parabola and is called the minimum. The vertex on a downward facing parabola is the highest point on the parabola and is called the maximum. These are the two possibilities for the vertex of a quadratic function.

Another Way of Factoring
Focusing on this algebra lesson, learners relate quadratic equations in factored form to their solutions and their graph from a number of different aspects. In some problems, one starts with the original equation and finds the solutions. In other problems, one starts with the solutions or the graph and builds the original equation.

Learners are given a graph of a parabola on a coordinate system, but intercepts and vertex are not labeled. The task is to analyze eight given quadratic functions and determine which ones might possibly be represented by the graph. The focus of the exercise is on determining key features of a graph, such as intercepts, maximum or minimum, and which way the graph opens, from the equation.
