What is a vertex?
The lowest or highest point of the parabola
What is the Axis/Line of Symmetry?
A line that divides the parabola into mirror images and passes through the vertex
What is the vertex of a parabola?
(h,k)
Using y=a(x-h)²+k , if a<0, does the quadratic have a maximum or minimum value?
Maximum
Using y=a(x-h)²+k , if a>0, does the quadratic have a maximum or minimum value?
Minimum
In the quadratic function, -2(x - 4)² + 8, would the axis of symmetry be 4 or -4?

How do you recognize the minimum or maximum value in the formula: y=a(x-h)² +k
Look at the K value from the formula y=a(x-h)² +k
If a>0, the parabola opens ____.
up
if a<0 then the curve will face
