Quadratic Mindmap
1. Axis of Symmetry
1. Definition: Vertical line going through the parabola and the vertex
2. Vertex
1. Definition: The lowest or highest point on the parabola
2. Parabola
1. Definition: A U shaped symmetrical curve, formed like an arch
2. Minimum
1. Definition: The lowest point of the parabola, when the parabola is opened up
2. Maximum
1. Definition: The highest point of the parabola when the parabola is upside down
2. X-Intercepts
1. Definition: Points where parabola passes the x-axis.
2. Y-Intercepts
1. Definition: Point where parabola passes the y-axis
2. Zeros of the function
1. Definition: Also known as the "roots" of the parabola. An input value hat produces and output of zero
2. Roots of the Equation
1. Although roots are known as the zeros the difference is that zeros is in function and roots is in equations. The roots of an equation are where the parabola passes the x-axis and is the solution to the equation.
2. End Behavior
