# Graphing Quadratic Equations: Using Any Method

This packet helps students practice how to graph quadratic equations using the methods learned in previous packets. There are many different ways to graph quadratic equations and one of the signs of a strong algebra student is the ability to choose the best strategy to use for different equations.

Students who want to review the different methods for graphing and solving quadratic equations should look at the full range of quadratic expression/equation practice packets.

Each page starts with easier problems that get more difficult as students work through the packet. After doing all 24 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.

Simple:

*Find the vertex and x-intercepts of the given function.*

$y= (x-1)(x+1)$

Advanced:

*Find the x-intercepts and the vertex of the graph, then graph the function.*

$y= x²-8x+12$

Practice problems require knowledge of graphing on a coordinate plane and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of integers (negative numbers).
