PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use relays to review a lot of different subjects in my classes. This one is used at the end Chapter 10 of the Prentice Hall CA Algebra 2 textbook.

This Scavenger Hunt has 12 problems. For each, the students must find complete the square on the x and/or y terms, and put the equation in standard conic form. After doing this, they are to match the given conic with its graph. The card with the correct graph will then given them a new equation.

The Hunt has three of each conic: circles, parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas. None of the graphs are centered about the origin.

Students have fun with Scavenger Hunts. They try hard to find the correct answer so their team can finish first!

It includes instructions on how to use the Scavenger Hunt, a worksheet that students can use to record their answers, and a suggested homework assignment. An answer key is also provided.

Translate between the geometric description and the equation for a conic section.
3.1 Given a quadratic equation of the form ax2 + by2 + cx + dy + e = 0, use the method for completing the square to put the equation into standard form; identify whether the graph of the equation is a circle, ellipse, parabola, or hyperbola, and graph the equation.

Previous California Standard for Algebra 2:
17.0 Given a quadratic equation of the form ax2 + by2 + cx + dy + e = 0, students can use the method for completing the square to put the equation into standard form and can recognize whether the graph of the equation is a circle, ellipse, parabola, or hyperbola. Students can then graph the equation.
