## What are quadratic relations? how we use it in real life?

The name Quadratic comes from "quad" meaning square, because the variable gets squared (like x2).It is also called an "Equation of degree 2" (because of the "2" on the x).Some real life examples can be: Mcdonald's logo , rides at wonderland, bottom of Eiffel tower, a football throw up in the air, and many more. Architects uses this unit of the grade 10 math to build these beautiful and amazing buildings, towers and more in this world.

## Introduction

Starting with table of values, table of values decides whether the equation is a quadratic relation or not. Check what table of values is in the picture and the video below. In quadratic relation 1 difference will always be different and it will decrease with a same amount of number each time. For example: -3,-1, 1, 3. this also relates to grade 10’s first unit called linear systems. In that unit we learned about linear lines. It relates to quadratic relation because the sometimes the first relation are same therefore it a a linear line.

## Solving Parabola's

• Vertex (intersection of A.O.S. and parabola)
• Axis of symmetry (x-axis)
• y-intercept (where the parabola meets the y axis)
• Zeros ( x-intercepts)
• Optimal value (y value of the parabola)

• Parabola can open up or down.
• The zero of a parabola is where the graph crosses the x-axis, "Zeroes" can also be called "x-intercepts" or "roots".
• The axis of symmetry divides the parabola into two equal halves.
• The vertex of a parabola meet. It is the point where the parabola is at it's maximum or minimum value.
• The optimal value is the value of the y co-ordinate of the vertex, the y-intercept of a parabola is where the graph crosses the y-axis.

## Transformations of a parabola

Some appropriate terminology of transformations are:

• Opens up/down (reflected in x/y axis)
• Vertical stretch by factor of a number
• Horizontal translation of units right or left
• Vertical translation of units up or down

y=a(x-h)²+k

## Graphing from vertex form

Key points:

y=a(x-h)²+k

a- Stretch of parabola

h-moves the vertex left or right

k-this moves the vertex up or down

Watch the videos below to know how to graph an equation in vertex form on a graph paper and on Desmos.

5.1 Graphing Quadratic Equations in Vertex Form

## Finding equations of parabola's given the vertex

Vertex=(h,k)

y=a(x-h)²+k

Example 1:

Vertex @ (2,4)

y=(x-2)²+4 \\ h and k value has been subbed into the equations

Example 2: (also finding the a value)

Vertex @ (-2,8) x-intercept (2,0)

y=a(x-h)²+k \\ basic formula

y=a(x+2)²+8 \\subbing the vertex

0=a(2+2)²+8 \\subbing the x-intercepts

0=a(4)²+8 \\ added the 2+2 inside the bracket

0=a16+8 \\ squared the 4 inside the bracket

0-8=16a+8-8 \\ moved the 8 on the other side

-8=16a \\ 8 became -8

-8/16=16a/16 \\ divide both sides by 16

-1/2=a \\ found the a value and now put it into an equation

therefore: y=-1/2(x+2)²+8

Also watch the video to know how to find equations when parabola is given.

## Isolating x

In isolating x your suppose to find what the value of x is. There are always to answers for this problem

## Factoring

Factoring is a process by which a the factors of a composite number or a composite expression are determined, and the number or expression is written as a product of these factors.Factoring is an important process in algebra which is used to simplify expressions, simplify fractions, and solve equations.

## Common factor

Common factoring is extremely important in this unit because every question in this unit you will need to ask yourself "CAN I COMMON FACTOR?" in order to get the correct answer. Common factor is basically factoring something common inside the bracket. Take a look at the examples and the video.
Common Factors

## Factoring simple trinomial

In simple trinomial we will factor trinomials that have a lead coefficient of 1. Take a look at the examples and video below:
Simple trinomial

## Complex trinomial

Complex trinomial is similar to simple trinomial but in complex trinomial you have a trinomials whose lead coefficient is greater than 1. Take a look at the examples and a video.
Complex trinomial
3.9 Complex Trinomial Factoring

## Factor by grouping

In factoring by grouping, you will need to look at 2 key points:

1. The equation has 4 terms
2. Arrange the middle terms so you can factor.

Take a look at the example below.

## Special factoring cases

• Differences square
• Complete square

It is the opposite of differences of squares

## Solving quadratic equations by factoring

Solving quadratic equation is finding the x-intercepts of the equations.

## Graphing quadratic in factored form

In order to put the quadratic relation in factored form you need to factor. Take a look at the example and video.

• Now graph this by using Desmos on your phone or on your computer.

## Complete the square

Completing the square is basically telling us how to go from standard form to vertex form.

Take a look at the examples and video.

3.14 Completing the square

## Solving Quadratic equations from standard form

This formula is very helpful for solving quadratic equations that are difficult or impossible to factor, and using it can be faster than completing the square. The Quadratic Formula can be used to solve any quadratic equation of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0.

## Discriminant

The number D=b²-4ac determined from coefficients of the equation ax²+bx+c=0. The discriminant revels what type of root the equation has.

Note: b²-4ac comes from the quadratic formula

## Word problems

Why do we need to know word problems?

• Word problems teach you to accept a challenge but also to persevere and use both logic and creative ability combined. When you visualize the word problem you will be able to get to the solution quicker. Most of us enjoy a good challenge; after all, it gives spice to life doesn't it. It makes a boring day interesting and a good challenge can even revitalize all your senses.

Take a look at the video below to know how to solve any kind of word problem.

## Connection between the topics

• Simple trinomial and complex trinomial

The connection between simple trinomial and complex trinomial is that there is a number front of x so that makes it ax²+bx+c where simple trinomial is x²+bx+c or else the method of solving simple and complex trinomial is same.

• Zeros and discriminant

Finding the zeros is when you get two x- intercepts and in discriminant you always will either have no x-intercepts, 1 x-intercept or 2 x-intercepts. The concept of x-intercept is same, therefore the idea of x-intercepts connect these topics.

• Standard form, Factored form and vertex form

All these topics are connected because all these equations make parabolas, solve parabolas and graph parabola. We can also convert these equations into each other therefore these 3 topics are connected.
