Study Notes

End Behavior of the Graph of ( y = x^2 )

• As ( x ) approaches positive infinity, ( y = x^2 ) also approaches positive infinity, indicating that the graph rises without bound.
• The end behavior mirrors that of a typical quadratic function, characterized by a U-shaped curve.

Characteristics of Even Functions

• Even functions exhibit symmetry about the y-axis.
• For all even functions, the end behavior as ( x ) approaches both positive and negative infinity is the same.

Type of Function

• The function ( y = x^2 ) is classified as a quadratic function due to its highest degree being two.

End Behavior as ( x ) Approaches Negative Infinity

• As ( x ) approaches negative infinity, the values of ( y = x^2 ) still approach positive infinity, maintaining the upward trend of the graph.

Degree of the Function

• The degree of the function ( y = x^2 ) is two, which defines its quadratic nature and affects the nature of its end behavior and graph shape.
