Algebra 1 - Characteristics of Quadratic Functions

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Now that we've learned a bit about Quadratic Functions, it's time to dig a little deeper. Today's free Algebra 1 video is on Characteristics of Quadratic Functions. For example, did you know that when graphing quadratics, the graph, known as a parabola, might cross the x-axis as often as twice or maybe not at all? Also, all parabolas have an axis of symmetry, or a line that splits them into two halves with the lowest or highest point on this axis being the vertex. The vertex is also the turning point on a parabola, where it goes from up to down or down to up. In today's video, Professor Burger will demonstrate how you can find the axis of symmetry and the vertex of any Quadratic Function. Today's video has a total of 5 lectures, so make sure you click the forward button to the left of the time stamp to move to the next lecture and see them all.
