MBF3C Date: _________________________ Adapted from OAME Support Resources for MBF3C – Quadratics I Graphing Quadratic Equations – The STEP Method Consider the graph of the basic quadratic relation y x = 2 x y x = 2 -3 9 -2 4 -1 1 0 0 1 1 2 4 3 9 Over 1 1 up Over 1 3 up What is the vertex? (0, 0) Direction of Opening? Up What is the STEP Pattern? (how do you move from point to point, starting from the vertex? it doesn’t matter if you go left or right!) Over 1 5 up Next consider the quadratic relation ( ) = + y x 2 2 3 2 x ( ) = + y x 2 2 3 2 -1 34 0 20 1 10 2 4 3 2 4 4 5 10 Over 1 1 x 2 = 2 up Over 1 3 x 2 = 6 up What is the vertex? (3, 2) Direction of Opening? UP What is the STEP Pattern? Over 1 5 x 2 = 10 up
