Students continue to build their communication skills as they present to their peers after they research the equations and graphs of quadratic functions. They have been learning how to use the 3 different forms of the equation to describe the characteristics of the graph of the quadratic and have also used this information to draw the graph of the function.
What are Quadratic Functions:
A quadratic function is a mathematical function that can be represented by a quadratic equation, which is an equation of the form f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c, where a, b, and c are constants. The graph of a quadratic function is a parabola, and it typically has a U-shape. Quadratic functions are commonly used to model various real-world phenomena, such as projectile motion of a ball or a canon.
