I was asked for a copy of my Completing the Square Smart Notebook Activity as a PDF so that users without a Smartboard can still use the activity.
Alberta Curriculum: 20-1 Relations and Functions
This lesson addresses the process for "Completing the Square" in order to address the following outcome:
*Analyze quadratic functions of the form y=ax^2+bx+c to identify characteristics of the corresponding graph, including vertex, domain and range, direction of opening, axis of symmetry, x and y intercepts and to solve problems.
Students will use algebra tiles and the student handout (found in the attachments of the file), guided by the teacher using this file, to create the formula for Completing the Square.
