A2.F.1.3 Graph a quadratic function. Identify the x- and y-intercepts, maximum or minimum value, axis of symmetry, and vertex using various methods and tools that may include a graphing calculator or appropriate technology.

In a Nutshell

Students will be able to graph and identify critical points in a quadratic function.

Student Actions

Teacher Actions

  •  Develop the Ability to Make Conjectures, Model, and Generalize-Students will generalize the graph of a quadratic function as parabolic. 
  • Develop a Deep and Flexible Conceptual Understanding- Students will develop a deep conceptual understanding of x- and y-intercepts within a quadratic function in the context of a real-world problem.
  • Develop the Ability to Communicate Mathematically- Students will interpret the critical points in a quadratic as x- and y-intercepts, minimum/maximum, axis of symmetry or vertex in a given graph with the aid of technology.

  • Allow the students the use of technology to manipulate functions. 
  • Allow the opportunity for students to develop the rules of transformation on their own by manipulating functions with technology. 
  • Give the students the opportunity to match equations with the parent function.
  • Provide the students the opportunity for practice of the application of transformation to graphs of functions.

Key Understandings


  • Identify the parent function in equation or graph form.

  • Understand vertical translations of a function f(x) + c, means moving up if c > 0 and down if c < 0.

  • Understand horizontal translation of a function, f(x + c), means moving left if c > 0 and right if c < 0.

  • Understand vertical stretch of a function, cf(x), when c > 0 and a compression when 0 < c < 1.

  • Understand f(cx) is a horizontal stretch of a function when c >0 and a compression when 0<c<1.
  • Understand cf(x) is a reflection of a function when c<0.

  •  Students confuse f( x + c) with f(x) +c moving in the wrong direction.
  • When c > 1, students interpret f(cx) as a horizontal stretch, and when 0 < c < 1, students interpret f(cx) as a horizontal compression.
  • Students misinterpret a negative leading coefficient in a function.
  • Students have a hard time identifying the parent function.
