Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Find roots/zeros for quadratic functions.

Determine if a quadratic function has 0, 1, or 3 roots.

Graph quadratic functions from an equation after determining axis of symmetry, vertex, and roots.

Use Vertex form of quadratic equations.

 Determine transformations (shifts left, right, up, and down, compressions, and stretches) from h, k, and a in vertex form of quadratic equations and graph of the equations in respect to a parent graph.
