```AFDA – Unit 4: Quadratic Functions
Day 1 Notes: Graphing Quadratics in Vertex Form
Name: _________________
Block: _____ Date:_______
Today you will be
 describing the behavior and characteristics of quadratic graphs
 graphing quadratics in vertex form
 writing an equation of a quadratic given a graph
Something old…
Domain – the ________________ or ______ values.
 Practical domain is the replacement x-values that makes sense in the context of
a real life situation.
 When looking at the graph, read __________________________ to
______________________ for the domain.
Range – the _________________ or ______ values.
 Practical range is the result of a function describing a real life situation.
 When looking at the graph, read __________________________ to
______________________ for range.
𝒚-intercept: the point(s) at which the graph crosses the 𝑦-axis (0, #)
Something new…
𝒙-intercept: the point(s) at which the graph crosses the 𝑥-axis. (#,0)
o quadratic roots/ roots
o zeros
o solutions

Use calculator to
find “zeros”
y-intercept
Use calculator table
