In this unit we learned different forms of writing out quadratic equations (factored form, general form, vertex/ standard form). We also learned how to graph those equations as parabolas. We now know new vocabulary words such as vertex, maximum/ minimum, congruent, parent function, and many more.
Heres a video on how to Find the vertex of a quadratic equation in general form (general form to vertex form):
Connection to our last unit:
Last unit we learned how to solve quadratic equations whereas this unit we were graphing them. Last unit we also used completing the square to solve the equation just like what I did in the video above. Although in the last unit we set the y to zero and solved for x.
