**Hint:**We find the $x-$intercepts of the curve by putting $y=0$ and we find $y-$intercept by putting $x=0$. We find the minimum value of the curve by making it a complete square. We take a minimum 5 points and join them with a free hand to get the plot.

**Complete step-by-step solution:**

We know that the graph of a function is the locus of points $\left( x,y \right)$ such that $y=f\left( x \right)$ where $x,y$ are real numbers. We are given the following quadratic polynomial function

\[y={{x}^{2}}+2x\]

So let us put $y=$ and find the $x-$intercept . We have

\[\begin{align}

& 0={{x}^{2}}+2x \\

& \Rightarrow x\left( x+2 \right)=0 \\

& \Rightarrow x=0\text{ or }x=-2 \\

\end{align}\]

So we find that $y=0$ at $x=0,-2$ .It means the curve cuts $x-$axis at $\left( -2,0 \right),\left( 0,0 \right)$.Let us put $x=0$ in the curve to have;

\[y={{0}^{2}}+2\cdot 0=0\]

So there is no $y-$intercept of the curve. We know that all quadratic functions of the type $y=a{{x}^{2}}+bx+c$ have minimum values but not maximum. So let us complete square in $x$ to have;

\[\begin{align}

& y={{x}^{2}}+2x \\

& \Rightarrow y={{x}^{2}}+2x+1-1 \\

& \Rightarrow y={{\left( x+1 \right)}^{2}}-1 \\

\end{align}\]

Since square is always non-negative we have ${{\left( x+1 \right)}^{2}}\ge 0$, then we have

\[\begin{align}

& \Rightarrow y={{\left( x+1 \right)}^{2}}-1\ge -1 \\

& \Rightarrow y\ge -1 \\

\end{align}\]

So the minimum value of $y=-1$ and the minimum value occurs when ${{\left( x+1 \right)}^{2}}=0$ or $x=-1$. We have already three points for the curve $\left( -2,0 \right),\left( -1,1 \right),\left( 0,0 \right)$. We find $y$ for two more points at $x=-3,x=1$ to have

\[\begin{align}

& y\left( -3 \right)={{\left( -3 \right)}^{2}}+2\left( -3 \right)=3 \\

& y\left( 1 \right)={{1}^{2}}+2\cdot 1=3 \\

\end{align}\]

So we draw the table for $x$ and $y$.

$x$ | $y$ |

$-3$ | 3 |

$-2$ | 0 |

$-1$ | $-1$ |

0 | 0 |

1 | 1 |

We plot the above points and join them to have the graph as

**Note:**We note that the obtained graph is the graph of upward parabola whose general equation is given by $y=a{{x}^{2}}+bx+c$ with the condition $a>0$ whose vertex here is $\left( -1,-1 \right)$.We can directly find the minimum value of $y={{x}^{2}}+2x$ by finding $y$ at $x=\dfrac{-b}{2a}$. If $a<0$ we the equation $y=a{{x}^{2}}+bx+c$ represents a downward parabola. We also note that the obtained curve is symmetric about the line $x=-1$.
