The instructor goes about giving a crash course on finding the vertex of a parabola. This is a very nice review of the subject but not really a complete lesson. The instructor fails to explain many of the symbols and other expressions used. The simple way taught by the instructor is the short cut to finding an otherwise complex problem. The nice thing about this technique is that there are no exceptions to this short cut. This is not what someone should learn if they wish to understand the concept behind finding the vertex.
