Review: Sections 2.1-2.5
STANDARD FORM of a Quadratic: ______________________________
Vertex: (
,
Finding zeros:
)
Axis of symmetry: ______
(MEMORIZE)
x-intercepts: zeros/roots/solutions
Degree 2: In standard form: Set f(x) to zero and solve by using square roots (Remember &plusmn;)
Not in standard form: factor and solve for x. If you cannot factor, use quadratic formula! (memorize)
Higher than degree 2: Set f(x) to zero and try to factor by GCF or grouping.
If it cannot factor, must use rational zero test.
