Quadratic Functions: Examples & Formula

1. Quadratic Functions: Examples & Formula

Learn what sets quadratic functions apart from all other functions. Learn how you can spot a quadratic just by looking at its graph. Also learn the two formulas that will help you when working with them.

Parabolas in Standard, Intercept, and Vertex Form

2. Parabolas in Standard, Intercept, and Vertex Form

By rearranging a quadratic equation, you can end up with an infinite number of ways to express the same thing. Learn about the three main forms of a quadratic and the pros and cons of each.

The Hyperbola: Definition, Vertices, Foci & Graphing

3. The Hyperbola: Definition, Vertices, Foci & Graphing

In this video lesson, we'll learn what a hyperbola is and how to graph one using the standard equation to find the center point, vertices and focus points.

Defining and Graphing Ellipses in Algebra

4. Defining and Graphing Ellipses in Algebra

Watch this video lesson to find out what makes ellipses so unique. Learn what kind of shape an ellipse is, how you can create one yourself and how you can graph an ellipse by just looking at the numbers in the equation.

How to Write the Equation of an Ellipse in Standard Form

5. How to Write the Equation of an Ellipse in Standard Form

In algebra, we have equations that make our life so much easier. Some equations are able to tell us information without hard math. Watch this video lesson to see how the equation of an ellipse does this.
