3.3 Analyzing Graphs of Quadratic Functions
Find the vertex, the axis of symmetry, and the maximum or minimum value of a quadratic function using the method of completing the square.
Graph quadratic functions.
Solve applied problems involving maximum and minimum function values.
Graphing Quadratic Functions of the Type
The graph of a quadratic function is called a parabola. The graph of every parabola evolves from the graph of the squaring function using transformations.
We get the graph of from the graph of as follows:
