Sketching Quadratics

Sketch the graph of quadratic functions using key features as a guide. After a brief discussion about the key features of a parabola, the video instructor completes several examples showing how to graph a quadratic function. Each function factors to give the x-intercepts, and symmetry provides additional points on the curve.
