Misty Charnesky-Week9-DQ2 DQ2: Describe in your own words how to graph a parabola. How do you know if the parabola opens upward or downward? What is the vertex of a parabola and how do you find it? Demonstrate with an example. What is a mathematical model and give examples when using a quadratic function? Graphing a parabola such as = + + y ax2 bx c 1. Does the parabola open up or down? a. If a>0, it opens upward. b. If a<0, it opens downward 2. How do you determine the vertex? a. The x-coordinate is b2a b. The y-coordinate by substituting the x-coordinate - b2a and substituting it for the x- values in the equation = + + y ax2 bx c 3. The y-intercept can be found by x=0 4. The x-intercept can be found by solving the equation
