Chapter 5

Quadratic Functions

Section 5.1

You will explore graphs, tables, and equations of quadratic functions to create a quadratic functions web. You will use the Zero Product Property to determine the x‑intercepts of a parabola. You will model and answer questions about everyday situations using quadratic functions.

Section 5.2

You will solve quadratic equations by completing the square and by applying the Quadratic Formula. You will determine the number of solutions to a quadratic equation and choose a strategy for solving based on the given equation.
