This Analyze Quadratic Functions: MATH "WAR" CARD GAME is a fun way to review the characteristics of quadratics by analyzing tables, graphs, equations, and verbal descriptions. The game is modeled after the card game "WAR" and the directions are included. Essentially, each student will play a card and the card with the highest value wins the round. Students will have to compare each other's cards and analyze the characteristics of quadratic functions in different formats. Some examples of the cards are: the maximum of a graph, the x-intercept of a table, the axis of symmetry of an equation, and the minimal value of a verbal description.
With 72 unique cards, students can play in groups of 2, 3, or 4. If time permits, shuffle the cards and play again!
Identify domain, range, vertex, axis of symmetry, maximum or minimum, solution(s), x-intercept(s), root(s), y-intercept, intervals of increase or decrease, and discriminant given a table, graph, equation, or verbal description of quadratic equations.
Common Core Standards:
Compare properties of two functions each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). For example, given a graph of one quadratic function and an algebraic expression for another, say which has the larger maximum.
