### Vocabulary for Algebra I - Quadratic Functions and Equations

Quadratic Equation (p. 544) An equation in two variables that can be written in the form y = ax^2 + bx + c
Parabola (p. 545) The curve formed when you graph a quadratic function
Minimum Value (p. 546) The least possible y-value for a function
Maximum Value (p. 546) The greatest possible y-value for a function
Vertex (p. 546) The ordered pair that is the highest or lowest point on a parabola
Zero of a Function (p. 553) An x-value that makes the function equal to 0. It is the same as the x-intercept.
Axis of Symmetry (p. 554) A vertical line that passes through the vertex and divides a parabola into two symmetrical halves.
6 Steps for Graphing a Quadratic Function (p. 561) 1) Find the Axis of Symmetry 2) Find the vertex 3) Identify the y-intercept 4) Find two more points by plugging in x values to the equation 5) Graph what you found in steps 1-4 6) Reflect the points from step 4 to fill out your parabolic shape
Root of a Polynomial (p. 569) Another name for the Zero of a Function
Completing the Square (p. 591) A process where you can "make" a quadratic into a perfect square trinomial for the purpose of solving the equation
5 Methods of Solving a Quadratic Equation (p.601) 1) Graphing 2) Factoring 3) Using Square Roots 4) Completing the Square 5) Using the Quadratic Formula

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
