axis of symmetry

a line about which a figure is symmetric

###
completing the square

a process used to make a quadratic expression into a perfect square trinomial

###
constant term

monomials that contain no variables

###
maximum value

the y-coordinate of the vertex of the quadratic function f(x)= ax²+bx+c, where a<0

###
minimum value

the y-coordinate of the vertex of the quadratic function f(x)= ax²+bx+c, where a>0

###
parabola

the set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point, called the focus, and a given line, called the directrix

###
quadratic equation

a quadratic function set equal to a value, in the form ax²+bx+c, where a≠0

###
quadratic formula

the solutions of a quadratic equation of the form ax²+bx+c=0, where a≠0, are given by the quadratic formula, which is -b±√b²-4ac all over 2a

vertex

1. the point at which the axis of symmetry intersects a parabola

2. the point on each branch nearest the center of a hyperbola

###
zero product property

for any real numbers a and b, if ab=0, then either a=0, b=0, or both a and b equal zero

###
zeros

the x-intercepts of the graph of a quadratic equation; the points for which f(x)=0
