Quadratic FunctionsPart 1: The Parent FunctionConsider the squaringfunction,f(x) =x2.xy-2-1121234xf(x)00.511.521. Compute and fill in the function values in the table above.2. For each ordered pair(x, f(x))in the table, plot the corresponding point on thexy-plane above.3. With a complete sentence, explain how you can deduce the values off(-0.5),f(-1),f(-1.5), andf(-2) without computing them directly.4. Plot the points corresponding with the values in #3 on thexy-plane above.5. Connect the points with a smooth curve. This curve is called aparabola.6. Complete this sentence:This parabola is symmetric about thehorizontal / verticallinex / y=.This line is known as theaxis of symmetryof the parabola.7. At which point does this parabola intersect its axis of symmetry?.
