Worksheet Overview

When plotting the graph of a quadratic equation, it's useful to draw out and complete a table so that we can find our coordinates to plot.

The x values are fixed and the corresponding y values are calculated.



Complete the following graph table:


 graph table for a quadratic graph



In the table above, the x values range from -3 to +3. 


To calculate our values for the y coordinates, we need to substitute the given values of x into the equation for the quadratic curve.

Likewise, if we are given the y coordinates we can substitute these values into the equation and solve.



A = x2 when x = -1

Therefore, A = -12 = 1


B = 1 - 2 = -1


C = 0 - 2 = -2


D = x2 when x = 1 so D = 12 = 1


E = 4 - 2 = 2


F = -2 like the rest of that row


G = x2 - 2 when x = 3 so G = 32 - 2 = 9 - 2 = 7


Let's consolidate this knowledge by working through some questions together.
