MBF3C Date: _________________________ Adapted from OAME Support Resources for MBF3C – Quadratics Part I Introducing… The Parabola The graph of a __quadratic__ relation is called a ____parabola____. The parabola has some important features: Everything you ever wanted to know about parabolas…¾Parabolas can open up or down ¾The zero of a parabola is where the graph crosses the x – axis ¾Zeroes” can also be called “x – intercepts” or “roots¾The axis of symmetry divides the parabola into two equal halves ¾The vertex of a parabola is the point where the axis of symmetry and the parabola meet. It is the point where the parabola is at its maximum or minimum value. ¾The optimal value is the value of the yco-ordinate of the vertex ¾The y-intercept of a parabola is where the graph crosses the y – axis __optimal value___zero____ __y - intercept_____vertex________zero__ _axis of symmetry___
