Quadratic Graphs

## Quadratics

Quadratic equations contain an x^2 term

Quadratic equations have curved graphs

You can draw the graph of a quadratic equation by completing a table of values

## Drawing quadratic curves

Use a sharp pencil

Plot the points carefully

Draw a smooth curve that passes through every point

Label your graph

Shape of graph will be either u or n

Drawing a smooth curve

It’s easier to draw a smooth curve if you turn your graph paper so your hand is inside the curve

Check it

All the points on your graph should lie on the curve

If one of the points doesn’t fit then double check your calculations
