SP#1: Unit E Concept 1 - Graphing a quadratic and identifying all key parts
This problem is about knowing how to complete the square and putting it in parent graph form in order to graph it. After, you will also need to find the vertex, y intercept, axis, and the exact and appropriate x intercept(s). Finding these will help you graph the parent function equation.
When completing the square it it important to factor out the coefficient properly in order to get the right factor. It is also important to pay special attention when solving for b because you will be plugging it in for the left and right side of the equation and then having to get your parent graph in order to graph. You must pay close attention when solving for the completed square because if not then you will get the wrong x intercepts.
