Algebra I Module 4, Topic A, Lesson 8

Two Students Studying

Student Outcomes

  • Students examine quadratic equations in two variables represented graphically on a coordinate plane and recognize the symmetry of the graph.  They explore key features of graphs of quadratic functions:  y-intercept and x-intercepts, the vertex, the axis of symmetry, increasing and decreasing intervals, negative and positive intervals, and end behavior.  They sketch graphs of quadratic functions as a symmetric curve with a highest or lowest point corresponding to its vertex and an axis of symmetry passing through the vertex.
