Published on 10/17/2008

Activity Overview

In this activity, students will explore the connection between linear factors and quadratic functions. Transformations of quadratic functions will be used to develop and enhance the connection between factors, zeros, and graphs.

It will make full use of the dynamic ability to manipulate graphs to make the connections in ways not possible on a TI-84.

Before the Activity

The activity should be teacher lead...the file will help a teacher walk their students through the investigation.
