Factoring Quadratics Given the Graph of f(x)

Activity Overview

This activity uses dynamic sliders for the coefficients a, b, and c, and restricts them so all values for a, b, and c come from the set of integers on the interval [-5,5].

Before the Activity

This activity can be used as a demo by the teacher using the TI-Nspire Teacher Edition Computer Software, or by students using handhelds (perhaps in addition to the teacher demonstration).
