Quadratic Functions

Quadratic expressions and equations are closely related to quadratic functions. These activities investigate what it means to factor a quadratic through the use of tiles and how the linear factors of a quadratic expression are related to the solutions of a quadratic equation and to the graph of a quadratic function.
