by Anthony Antinucci
# 1. Parabola- Graph of a quadratic function.

# 2. Axis of Symmetry- a line that divides a parabola into to mirror images.

# 3. Standard From of a Quadratic Function- f(x)=ax^2 + bx + c

# 4. Vertex of a parabola- is the point at which the parabola intersects the axis of symmetry

# 5. Graph a function using these forms- y=ax^2 + c , y=ax^2 + bx + c

# 6. Vertex form of a quadratic function- y= a(x - h)^2 + k

# 7. Factoring- rewriting an expression as the product of its factors.

# 8. Greatest Common Factor (GCF)- common factor with the greatest coefficient and the greatest exponent.
