Forms of Quadratic Equations

Activity Overview

This activity is designed as a 1 period summary activity on quadratic equations written in vertex form and intercept form (with one problem expressed in standard form to be solved with the quadratic formula). Students should already be familiar with the forms of the equation as well as basic graphing. Keystrokes are listed in the student worksheet and are relatively simple. Questions appear in both the handheld file and on the worksheet for students to answer in either location.

Before the Activity

Load the QuadraticEquations.tns file onto all student handhelds. The activity is designed to be student focused with minimal teacher assistance. Students should record answers on the student handout.
