Steps to graph a quadratic equation: 1. Get it in standard form y ax 2 bx c 2. Identify a, b, and c. b 3. Plug these into x 2a (this is the axis of symmetry) 4. Plug this x value into the quadratic equation to find y. (this is the (x, y) for the vertex) 5. Make an x, y chart using the axis of symmetry as the center. 6. Make the graph by plotting the points. 7. Connect the points with a smooth curve.
