The graph of f(x)=x2 is called a "Parabola." It looks like this:

One of the ways to graph this is to use plug in a few x-values and get an idea of the shape. Since the x values keep getting squared, there is an exponential increase on either side of the y-axis. You can see this by plugging in a few values:
When
x=0, f(x)=0
x=1, f(x)=12=1
x=2, f(x)=22=4
x=3, f(x)=32=9
x=4, f(x)=42=16
The same holds true for negative x-values to the left of the y-axis since a negative value squared is positive. For example,
x=1, f(x)=(1)2=1×1=1
x=2, f(x)=(2)2=2×2=4
