### About This Chapter

Our professional instructors take you through this chapter's engaging lessons to prepare you for TASC Math questions on graphing and factoring quadratic equations. Use the chapter's quizzes to get practice after finishing the lessons.

## TASC Math: Graphing and Factoring Quadratic Equations - Chapter Summary

Completing the square to help learn about a parabola is one topic covered in these engaging video and text lessons. Each of the following lessons' topics will make you more prepared for the TASC Math exam:

• Functions of tables and graphs in the real world
• Scatter plots and line graphs
• Standard, vertex and intercept parabolas
• Using FOIL and the area method to multiplying binomials
• Factoring quadratic equations through the FOIL method in reverse
• Solving a quadratic equation by factoring
• Factoring quadratic trinomials
• Completing the square

The few extra steps needed to factor quadratics with a non-1 leading coefficient is another targeted subject you'll learn about through an effective video lesson along with its accompanying with text transcript. If you look at a video once and want to go back you to a specific place, you can easily skip around to different segments with the video tags.

### Objectives of the TASC Math: Graphing and Factoring Quadratic Equations Chapter

You may take the TASC Math test either on a computer or on paper. Both formats will include gridded-response, constructed-response and multiple-choice questions; the computer-based test also includes one technology-enhanced question. The test includes questions from five major content areas, including algebra; algebra questions make up 26% of the test questions. The multiple-choice questions you'll see in this chapter may closely resemble the questions that you'll come across within the algebra section of the exam dealing with quadratic equations.
