## Quadratic Modeling Using Vertex Form

Please watch the video below to learn how to derive the quadratic equation that models a given parabolic graph. You should have paper and pencil on hand to take note and work the example graphing problems in the video before starting .

In the second video, you will learn how to create a graph, plot points in a graph, and plot the graph of an equation using the Geometer's Sketchpad, so please have the software open to use for the example graph you will create.
