Investigate and explain characteristics of
range, vertex, axis of
symmetry, zeros, intercepts,
extrema, intervals of
increase, and decrease,
and rates of change.
Determine the vertex of the following
functions:
•f(x) = 2(x – 1)2 + 1
•g(x) = -(x + 3)2 + 5
•h(x) = 3(x – 2)2 – 7
Vertex & Axis of Symmetry Summary
Put equation in standard form f(x) = ax2 + bx + c
 Determine the value “a” and “b”
 Determine if the graph opens up (a > 0) or down
(a < 0)
b
 Find the axis of symmetry:

x
2a
Find the vertex by substituting the “x” into the
function and solving for “y”
 Determine two more points on the same side of
the axis of symmetry
 Graph the axis of symmetry, vertex, & points

 The
equation is of the form:
 y = a(x – h)2 + k, where:
 The
vertex is located at (h, k)
 The axis of symmetry is x = h
 The “a” is the same as in the standard form
 The “a” is the stretch of the function
 The vertex is shifted right by h
 The vertex is shifted up by k

 We
converted from Vertex form to
Standard form of the quadratic function
above in slide 3 by expanding the
(a – h)2 term and combining like terms
 How can we convert from Standard
form to Vertex form?
Convert from Standard to
Vertex Forms
 Look
at the standard form:
y = ax2 + bx + c, where a ≠ 0
 And look at the Vertex form:
y = a(x – h)2 + k
 “h” is the axis of symmetry, which is the
“x” part of the coordinates of the vertex
 “k” is the “y” part of the vertex

2a form
 How did we then find the “y” part of the
vertex?
 Substitute the x into the original
equation and solve for y.
 This is the “k” of the vertex form
 The “a” is the same for both forms
Convert from Standard to
Vertex Forms
 Convert
the following functions to vertex
form:
 f(x) = x2 + 10x – 20
 y = (x + 5)2 - 45
 g(x) = -3x2 – 3x + 10
 y = -3(x + 0.5)2 + 10.75
 h(x) = 0.5x2 – 4x – 3
 y = 0.5(x – 4)2 - 11
