In this lesson, we explore the world of parabolas and how to graph them. Using different quadratic functions, we learn how to plot the ordered pairs and connect them to form a parabola. We also discover that all parabolas have an axis of symmetry and a vertex point, which is either a minimum or maximum point. Additionally, we learn how to identify quadratic functions in the form of f(x) = ax² + bx + c and how to use them to graph parabolas. By the end of this lesson, you will have a solid understanding of the basics of parabolas and how to graph them.
