    Zeros.
    Asymptotes.
    Discontinuities.
    Intercepts.
    Minima or Maxima.
    Really, any interesting feature.

    And, yes, just looking at some equations should give you a clue what to mention. In this case, it is a parabola through the Origin. This eliminates asymptotes and discontinuities. Now that we know it's a parabola, some more specific items can be included.

    Vertex.
    Directrix.
    Axis of Symmetry.
    "p" value.
    Orientation.
