1 Chapter 6 Quadratic Functions Determine the characteristics of quadratic functions Sketch Quadratics Solve problems modelled b Quadratics 6.1Quadratic Functions A quadratic function is of the form where a, b and c are. Also Eample: The graph of a quadratic function has a ver distinct shape called a 1 P a g e

2 Uses of Quadratics and Parabolas Projectile Motion Anthing that is thrown that has some horizontal motion. Jumping on a bike, skis, snowboards, skidoos, etc. Running off a diving board. Arrows, or bullets that are shot. Throwing footballs or baseballs, or kicking a soccer ball. When ou take. The concave on a. Recall 106 science P a g e

3 Parts of a Parabola Place where parabola crosses. Place where parabola crosses. of a parabola The that passes through the 3 P a g e

4 Quadratic functions and Parabolas An relation that can be represented b a parabola can be modelled b a. A quadratic function must have a term has its highest. The general equation for a quadratic is: Note: In tet this is called as well! is the quadratic (or squared term) is the linear term is the constant term In a b c is called the. 4 P a g e

5 Eample: Which of the following is a quadratic function? If it is not state wh. If it is state which direction it opens ( 1)( 3) Tet Page 34 #1,, 4, 5, 6 5 P a g e

6 Putting Disguised Quadratics into General Form So, wh do we need to be able to put quadratics into the general form? So we can determine the values of a, b, and c. These values tell us about the of the parabola. For eample, what does a tell us?. What else do these values tell us? To determine this lets complete the following activit. 6 P a g e

7 Effects of a on the parabola First investigate the effect of changing the value of a 1. What happens to the direction of the opening of the quadratic if a < 0 and a > 0?. A) If the quadratic opens upward, is the verte a maimum or minimum point? B) What if the quadratic opens downward? 3. Is the shape of the parabola effected b the parameter a? In other words are some graphs?. 4. What happens to the -intercepts as the value of a is changed? 5. What is the impact on the graph if a = 0? 7 P a g e

8 Effects of b on the parabola 6. What is the effect of parameter b in = a + b + c? 7. Is the parabola s line of smmetr changing? Effects of c on the parabola 8. What is the effect of parameter c in =a +b + c?. 9. How can ou identif the -intercept from the equation in general form? 10. Is the line of smmetr affected b the parameter c? 8 P a g e

10 Verte: Ais of Smmetr: Domain: Range: Verte: Ais of Smmetr: Domain: Range: P a g e -

11 Another wa of finding verte Consider the last problem: What are the values of : a = b = c = Calculate : How does this value relate to the verte? The -value of the verte is found b putting the value into the function. Eamples: 1. Find the verte of the following: A) (#3 in the sketches) B) P a g e

The path of the snowboarded below is given b the equation: A) Determine the boarders ma height. 5.B) Determine the domain and range the boarder s jump. 13 P a g e

14 Finding verte from the average of -values The -coordinate of the verte ( ) can also be found b taking average of the -values for an two points on the parabola that has the. Table of values Given points A) (3, 5) and (7,5) B) (1, ), (0, 5), (3, ) 14 P a g e

15 6.3 Drawing more accurate parabolas A quick sketch of a parabola can be made if ou know the and the the parabola. Eample: Sketch the graph of = +-3 The sketch the graph of = +-3 can be made more if we know more. The etra points that are tpicall used are the places where the function. To find the we set and solve for Remember that for the function =a +b + c the is 15 P a g e

16 Lets sketch the parabola again using the Is there another point that we can plot based from the -intercept?. To find the we set and solve for When finding the of a function ou are actuall finding the for the function. ie. You are finding that make the function. To solve for we will need to the quadratic. You will be required to use developed in Mathematics 101 to determine the. 16 P a g e

17 SO, how do we factor Product and Sum Method You must find two numbers such that the product of the two numbers equals, the. The sum of the two numbers must equal, the. So now what? To find the zeros from the of the function we use the The states that: if the of two real numbers is, then or of the numbers must be. Find the zeros of Lets sketch the parabola again using the as well 17 P a g e

18 Eamples For each of the following find A) the verte B) the -intercept C) the -intercepts Then use this information to draw a graph of the function P a g e

27 Note: The last two equations in our notes and on Assignment 6. were epressed in a special form called the of the quadratic. Factored form of a quadratic Where r and s are the of the function are of the parabola. is the. Eample Sketch the graph of a parabola that passes through the points (-3,0) and (4, 0) Make more parabolas that are different from the first one, but still have How man parabolas do ou think are possible?
