Quadratic Unit Activity #1: Graphing a Parabola

Published on 08/22/2012

Activity Overview

This is the first activity in a series on vertex form of a quadratic for algebra I. This introduces the 'squaring' function.

Before the Activity

Send the .tns file to the students with what ever method you have and hand out the worksheet.

During the Activity

You may have the students work through the activity in groups, individually or as a whole class.

After the Activity

Review the answers to problem #2 so that the students understand how to find the answer graphically. You may want to show how to arrive at a solution algebraically.
