Given the Graph of a Parabola, State its Equation in Vertex Form

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

This activity is designed for students to study on their own. It is designed in a 'StudyCard' format.
A graph of a parabola will be shown.
The student is asked to find the equation of the parabola in vertex form:
y = a*(x - h)^(2) + v.
Press enter on the double up arrow in the Ans... section to see the answer.
This does not 'keep score', it is just a collection of electronic flash cards.

Before the Activity

In order to use this, students must have already learned how to graph quadratic equations in vertex form. This activity asks the students to reverse that process.
The directions are included in the TNS document.
