This chapter helps students review the concepts in a quadratic functions unit of a standard high school trigonometry course. Topics covered include:
- Writing parabolas in standard, intercept and vertex forms
- Factoring quadratic equations using FOIL in reverse
- Factoring quadratic equations with non-1 leading coefficients
- Completing the square
- Solving quadratic equations by factoring
- Solving quadratics with complex numbers as the solution
- Graphing and solving quadratic inequalities
- Graphing a system of quadratic inequalities
- Applying quadratic functions to solve projectile motion problems
- Using quadratic functions to model a given data set
1. What is a Parabola?
A parabola is a U shape that is created when a quadratic equation is graphed. Explore the characteristics of parabolas, how they are used in everyday life, and the defining spots of a parabola.
2. Parabolas in Standard, Intercept, and Vertex Form
The equation of a parabola can be expressed in three different forms. Explore different kinds of parabolas, and learn about the standard form, the intercept form, and the vertex form of parabola equations.
3. How to Factor Quadratic Equations: FOIL in Reverse
The FOIL method can be used in reverse to identify the standard multiples from a given equation. Discover how factoring quadratic equations using FOIL in reverse applies to multiplying binomials and breaking down equations to simplify quadratic equations.
4. Factoring Quadratic Equations: Polynomial Problems with a Non-1 Leading Coefficient
Quadratic equations can be factored, even those whose leading coefficient is not '1', by using the product of binomials and isolating the pattern. Learn how to adjust the pattern and factor quadratic equations with non-1 leading coefficients using examples.
5. How to Complete the Square
Squares can be identified and completed by turning a quadratic equation from standard form to vertex form. Learn how the transformation of the form of a quadratic equation is completed, and also how trinomials can be factored to perfect square binomials.
6. Completing the Square Practice Problems
A quadratic equation in standard form can be turned into one in vertex form by completing the square. Learn the functions of c-values, perfect square binomials, and the standard form of the quadratic equation ins and solve completing-the-square practice problems.
7. How to Solve a Quadratic Equation by Factoring
Factoring is a method of solving quadratic equations in which the equation is expressed as a product of two or more factors. Learn how to solve a quadratic equation using the factoring method through the given examples.
8. How to Solve Quadratics with Complex Numbers as the Solution
Quadratics, even those with complex number solutions, can be solved using the discriminant, and square roots. Practice this with polynomials, and isolate the variables to solve the equations.
9. Graphing & Solving Quadratic Inequalities: Examples & Process
Graphing and solving quadratic inequalities is a process and an essential skill to be successful in many math subjects. Learn the definition of a quadratic inequality, how to plot points on a graph, explain the graph, and where to shade a graph.
10. Graphing a System of Quadratic Inequalities: Examples & Process
A system of quadratic inequalities is a collection of such functions, put into a set, or a 'whole'. Learn the process of how to graph a system of quadratic inequalities and view examples.
