This document contains 11 practice problems related to graphs of quadratic functions that can be used as anticipatory sets, guided practice, independent practice, exit slips, homework, quiz, or test problems. The problems and activities are designed to develop and assess student conceptualization of parabolas, as well as the mathematics practice standards. They are also designed to help the teacher assess the students’ abilities when it comes to working with graphing quadratics.
About my Products:
While the PARCC assesses many of the mathematical practice standards, I aim to create many problems and activities that require students to apply the skills outlined in the performance level descriptors. I believe that the more students are exposed to such types of work, the more likely they are to develop a conceptual understanding of the concepts & of their own learning, succeed on the PARCC, and hence the more likely they are to be prepared for success in college and/or their future careers. If you happen to have any questions or concerns regarding anything your purchase (or download for free), please do not hesitate to contact me! Have a wonderful school year! :)
*Please note that in problem 11, you should hand write (or type) in the "common errors" your unique students may seem to make.
