Objective: To construct graphs of linear and quadratic functions.
Tools: Insert Text

NoToolInstructions
1
Open GeoGebra. Use the View menu to display the coordinate axes.
2
Type y = - x + 4 to construct a line passing through A and B.
3
Type f(x) = 0.5x^2 - 4.5x + 9 to construct a parabola passing through points A and B.
4
To construct the intersection, type A = (2,2) and B = (5,-1) in the input bar and press the ENTER key after each equation.

6
In the text dialog box, type f(x) = 0.5x^2 - 4.5x + 9 in the Edit text box, then click the Latex formula check box to check it, and then click the OK button. Notice what happens to the text.
7
Now, label the graph of the linear function and the coordinates of A and B with (2,2) and (5,-1) respectively.
