# Graphing Quadratic Functions

Students are introduced to the parent graph for quadratic functions: y = x^2. Students then learn how to graph quadratic functions, such as y = x^2 + 2, and how to identify the vertex, minimum, x- and y-intercepts, axis of symmetry, one pair of symmetric points, and the domain and range of the graph. Finally, students are asked to compare their graph with the parent graph for quadratic functions.
