This activity covers graphing quadratic functions, finding the discriminant of a quadratic equation, finding the number and types of roots of a quadratic equation, and solving a quadratic equation by using the quadratic formula by using TI-Navigator.
Before the Activity
If you are using the TI-Navigator System with the TI-73 you will need the attached .pdf file.
This activity is meant to assess students' understanding of quadratic functions and to tie together various concepts that are covered in a quadratic functions unit.
After the Activity
Based upon students' answers, the teacher should decide what topics to review with his/her students.
