This is a set of 4 graphic organizers designed to help students practice the procedures. The goal is to use the organizer until the procedures are mastered and this "skeleton" is no longer needed!
The graphic organizers are:
1. Graphing Quadratic Functions - Students are lead through acknowledging the a, b, and c values, then finding the axis of symmetry, the vertex, writing in vertex form, completing a table, graphing, and finding roots.
2. Completing the Square - method for solving quadratic equations - step by step directions
3. Quadratic Formula - step by step filling in the values for a, b, and c, and then getting the solutions!
4. Graphing Absolute Value Functions - finding the vertex, making a table, and graphing
Ideas for use:
-Laminate for students to write on
-Place inside pocket-whiteboards for use as needed (this is what I am doing!)
-Print on paper to write on
-Leave on board as a reminder
-Give out copies for students to reference as a reminder
-Print multiple organizers onto one page front and back
