3.1a Transformations of Quadratic Functions
Investigation:
Graph y = x2 by using a table of values
x
y

3
In general, a quadratic function is of the form y = ax

2.3 Part 2 Properties of Triangles
Warm-up:
Find angle A
2.3b Properties of Triangles
Determine the height of each of the following SSA (not a contained angle) triangles.
In general, the height of a triangle can be determined by using SOH CAH TOA
h = bsin

2.3 Part 3 Ambiguous Case continued
Warm-Up: Determine the number of triangles that exists.
Note: Gven a SSA triangle, two triangles exists if h < a < b . This is called the ambiguous case.
Ex. In
ABC , A = 26 and b = 120 cm.
Draw a diagram of the three
