Chapter 10: Quadratic Equations and Functions

Created by: CK-12
 0  0  0

As you saw in Chapter 8, algebraic functions not only produce straight lines but curved ones too. A special type of curved function is called a parabola. Perhaps you have seen the shape of a parabola before:

  • The shape of the water from a drinking fountain
  • The path a football takes when thrown
  • The shape of an exploding firework
  • The shape of a satellite dish
  • The path a diver takes into the water
  • The shape of a mirror in a car’s headlamp

Many real life situations model a quadratic equation. This chapter will explore the graph of a quadratic equation and how to solve such equations using various methods.
