This video deals with solving quadratic functions. It does not involve the use of the quadratic equation; rather, only factored equations are used. The speaker starts out with a factored quadratic equation. The speaker goes on to do the mathematical steps necessary to find both the x and y intercepts of the quadratic function at hand. The author then continues on with the example to find the function's minimum. Next all of the points that have been solved for are plotted and the function is sketched by hand.
