**Pattern Probes**Which of the following relationships describes the pattern: 1,-1,-3,-5…? A. tn = -2n B. tn = -2n +3 C. tn = 2n – 3 D. tn = 2n**Pattern Probes**2. What is the 62th term of the pattern 1,9,17,25,…? A. 489 B. 496 C. 503 D. 207**Quadratics Patterns**Note: Another phrase for linear pattern is an arithmetic sequence. • A linear pattern is given by tn = t1 +(n-1)d • A quadratic pattern has its CD on D2. • A linear pattern has a common difference on D1. • A quadratic pattern is defined by tn = an2 + bn +c • The CD = 2a for a quadratic Last time we learned that:**Let’s Graph (Put on your graphing shoes and graph in**blue?) Quadratics, as we know, do not increase by the same amount for every increase in x. (How do we know this?) Therefore, their graphs are not straight lines, but curves. In fact, if you’ve ever thrown a ball, watched a frog jump, or taken Math 12, you’ve seen a quadratic graph! Its table of values would be Consider the function f(x) = x2 - the simplest quadratic (Why?) The pattern would be**Graphing Cont**Domain: xε R Range: y ε [0,∞) or y ≥ 0 Axis of Symmetry: x = 0 Vertex Once we have the vertex, the rest of the points follow the pattern: Over 1, up 1 Over 2, up 4 Over 3, up 9 We can plot these points to get the PARABOLA**Transformations of y= x2**That parabola (which represents the simplest quadratic function), can be Reflected Stretched vertically Slid horizontally Slid vertically These are called transformations: Ref, VS, HT, VT, These show up (undone) in the transformational form of the equation: The form y = ax2 + bx + c is called the GENERAL FORM**Transformations**Ex. Graph the function What are the transformations? So we can use these to get a MAPPING RULE: Reflection: No (the left side is not multiplied by -1) Vertical Stretch, VS? Yes VS = 2 Vertical Translational, VT? Yes VT = -3 Horizontal Translational, HT? Yes HT = 1 (x,y) (x+1, 2y-3) We now take the old table of values and do what the mapping rule says.**Transformations**Ex. Graph the function So we can use these to get a MAPPING RULE: (x,y) (x+1, 2y-3) We now take the old table of values and do what the mapping rule says.**Transformations**Ex. Graph the function New Vertex (1,-3) that is (HT, VT)**Transformations**Ex. Graph the function Once we find the new vertex, the rest of the points follow the pattern Over 1, up 1 x VS Over 2, up 4 x VS Over 3, up 9 x VS New Vertex (1,-3) that is (HT, VT) Domain: x ε R Range: y ε [-3,∞) Axis of symmetry: x = 1**Graph the following.

Example: The parabola passes through the point (x,2).
