Big Idea: The graph of any quadratic function is a parabola that can quickly be sketched by transforming the

graph of the parabola y = x2 with a vertical shift, a horizontal shift, a reflection about the x-axis, and/or a vertical

stretch or compression.

Big Skill: You should be able to sketch a quadratic function by completing the square so that the function

explicitly show the transformations to be made, and then using those transformations to make the sketch.

Definition: Quadratic Function

2

A quadratic function (in general form) is a function of the form f x ax bx c where a, b, and c are real

numbers and a 0. The domain consists of all real numbers. The point (0, c) is the y-intercept of the graph of

the quadratic function. The graph of a quadratic function is always a parabola.

A quadratic function (in standard form) is a function of the form f x a x h k where a, h, and k are

2

real numbers and a 0. The point (h, k) is the vertex of the graph of the quadratic function.

A quadratic function (in factored form) is a function of the form f x a x r1 x r2 where a, is a real

number (a 0), and r1 and r2 are complex numbers (remember that the real numbers are a subset of the complex

numbers). The points (r1, 0) and (r2, 0) are the zeros of the graph of the quadratic function, provided r1 and r2

are real numbers.

Notice that the graph open up.

Notice that the y-axis (eqn: x = 0) is an axis of

symmetry.

Algebra is:

the study of how to perform multi-step arithmetic calculations more efficiently,

and the study of how to find the correct number to put into a multi-step calculation to get a desired answer.

The graph of every quadratic function can be obtained by transforming the graph of y = x2 with:

1. a vertical shift,

2. a horizontal shift,

3. a reflection about the x-axis,

4. and/or a vertical stretch or compression

2

Graph of the Quadratic Function f x x k (a vertical shift):

of shifting the graph vertically (up/down).

The graph of y = x2 + k is the graph of y = x2 shifted up

by k units when k is a positive number.

The graph of y = x2 + k is the graph of y = x2 shifted

down by k units when k is a negative number.

Notice that the vertex is at (0, k).

Notice that the graph still opens up.

Notice that the y-axis (eqn: x = 0) is still the axis of

symmetry.

Practice:

1. Sketch a graph of y = x2 + 1.5 and y = x2 3.

Algebra is:

the study of how to perform multi-step arithmetic calculations more efficiently,

and the study of how to find the correct number to put into a multi-step calculation to get a desired answer.

squaring has the effect of shifting the graph

horizontally (left/right).

The graph of y = (x h)2 is the graph of y = x2 shifted

right by h units when h is a positive number.

The graph of y = (x h)2 is the graph of y = x2 shifted

left by h units when h is a negative number.

Notice that the vertex is at (h, 0).

Notice that the graph still opens up.

Notice that the vertical line x = h is the new axis of

symmetry.

Practice:

2. Sketch a graph of y = (x + 1.5)2 and y = (x 3)2.

Algebra is:

the study of how to perform multi-step arithmetic calculations more efficiently,

and the study of how to find the correct number to put into a multi-step calculation to get a desired answer.

Graph of the Quadratic Function f x ax (a reflection about the x-axis, and/or a vertical stretch):

squaring can reflect the graph about the x-axis, or

produce a vertical stretching of the graph.

The graph of y = ax2 is the graph of y = x2 stretched

vertically upwards when a is a positive number greater

than 1.

The graph of y = ax2 is the graph of y = x2 compressed

vertically upwards when a is a positive number less

than 1.

The graph of y = ax2 is the graph of y = x2 reflected

about the x-axis and stretched vertically downwards

when a is a negative number less than -1.

The graph of y = ax2 is the graph of y = x2 reflected

about the x-axis and compressed vertically downwards

when a is a positive number greater than -1.

Notice that the vertex is at (0, 0).

Notice that the graph opens up when a>0 and

opens down when a< 0.

Notice that the vertical line x = 0 is still the axis of

symmetry.

If a > 0, sketch the parabola opening up, otherwise

sketch it opening down.

If |a| > 0, sketch the parabola vertically stretched,
